Like every month, I’m breaking down the releases to the top five suggestions. This often helps to avoid the overwhelm when lots of new content is added to a streaming service. And like always, I try to offer something for all interests, whether you love murder mysteries, documentaries, or comedies.

Sit back and get ready to make a list of the shows you need to stream on your Acorn TV streaming service in August 2019.

5. Magic Numbers

Maths is an intriguing subject. But how has it evolved? That’s something you’ll find out in Magic Numbers. In three episodes, Dr. Hanna Fry will take you through the evolution of maths, starting from its philosophical origins.

This is more than just a numbers game. It looks at how it was invented and why it was brought into the world in the first place. Was it even invented or was this a discovery by humans? After all, it’s the foundation of everything.

The 2018 docu-series will be available to stream on Aug. 26.
