Why coincidences happen to some people more than others

Rajesh Mirchandani speaks with Professor David Spiegelhalter of Cambridge University who has been collecting stories of coincidence since 2011. David Spiegelhalter believes its not that these things occur, it's that we notice them. As well as giving an opportunity to study probability and chance David believes that coincidences are important to us, because they are uplifting and good for us.
