I am pretty sure this is a weird (and perhaps hard or unique) question, but hopefully it is understandable. The title is a mixed one, but it is primarily about math.

Specifically, I am looking for sets of free mathematics online video lectures delivered by any person who speaks in British accent.

I have course materials that I need to learn, but at the same time I would like to learn British accent too as a hobby. Instead of learning them separately, it saves time a lot. The course materials are Lebesgue/measure theory related, or number theory related, but not limited to those, as long as they are college math.

I have searched youtube and unsurprisingly did not find the lectures with exact criteria. The Oxford channel provides some, but else: - either there is no material exactly as above, - or the lectures are not delivered in set (meaning one video one whole story/topic, although this is fine too) - or (weirdly for me) many lecturers speak no British accent.

Is there any other channels, or websites, satisfying the conditions?

Primary condition: free online video lectures in college math delivered in British accent

Secondary/optional condition: they are Lebesgue/measure theory related or number theory related, or any higher math topic.

Thank you in advance. Stay safe!

    $\begingroup$ FYI, there are quite a few British accents. Did you have a preference for one in particular, or would any of them do? For example, would you be happy with some kind of Scottish accent? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ This i part one of an excellent set of lectures on measure theory youtube.com/watch?v=xZ69KEg7ccU. I think the lecturer might be German, his English is excellent and he probably sounds like he normally does, except in English. Don't worry about the accent, sound like yourself. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ How about the pretentious approach to analytic number theory or John Conway's surreal numbers? $\endgroup$ Jun 8, 2020 at 18:53

1 Answer 1

  1. John Conway was an English mathematician (who spent the second half of his career at Princeton) known for the Game of Life among other things. He died recently due to COVID-19. Here he lectures about surreal numbers.

  2. Here is Andrew Granville giving a lecture entitled "the pretentious approach to analytic number theory."
