Raj Persaud uses examples of extraordinary success to discuss what forces are at work to help the apparent lucky few attain what the rest of us desire. Theories around luck, internal or external forces beyond or within our control and the relative roles of intelligence or motivation are considered. Using some real footage of a high stakes poker game in which the Professor takes part, the audience is invited to judge for themselves what is more important - forces you control or those beyond yourself.
