Another interesting and discuss-worthy issue is why a realistic analysis of the original names of villages and quarters, used by the people even after the changes of the names in Republic era, is not been made in works on the region’s culture and history, including studies in Turkish (w:Turkish). Limiting myself to cities as Ordu (w:Ordu), Giresun (w:Giresun), Trabzon (w:Trabzon), Rize (w:Rize) and Artvin (w:Artvin), I worked on original words, idioms and toponyms used by Turkish dialect speakers, independent from their native language. I made comparisons with vernaculars from surrounding cities including Samsun (w:Samsun), Erzurum (w:Erzurum) and Gümüşhane (w:Gümüşhane), Anatolia, and from some surrounding countries. I hope that the comparison of the original toponyms with equivalents from Anatolia, Greece (w:Greece) Hellas (w:Hellas), Armenia (w:Armenia), Georgia (w:Georgia), Azerbaijan (w:Azerbaijan) and other Turkish states could be useful for those interested in regional history, and influential for researchers."

It was a travel program because mathematics is a very international subject and so we travel around the world: to India (w:India), to Germany (w:Germany), to Greece (w:Greece). At the moment I'm in the middle of making a history of mathematics series for the BBC (w:BBC), four one-hour programs from the Ancient Babylon (w:Babylon) through to the modern day. So we've been all over the world to China (w:China), to India again, Africa (w:Africa)... And I also did a game show, that was quite fun, called Mind Games, which was a puzzle show which I hosted.
