The importance of science: an outsider's perspective

Public lecture with Bill Bryson and Professor Jim Al-Khalili.


He has been given the President's Award by the Royal Society of Chemistry, the Bradford Washburn Award by the Museum of Science in Boston and has been made an honorary Fellow of the Kavli Institute of Particle Physics, the British Science Association and the Royal Society. Yet renowned author, Bill Bryson, claims to have been a terrible student of science in school. Join Bill as he speaks to Professor Jim Al-Khalili about his personal experiences and perspectives on science, from childhood and his school years, through to writing the highly successful A Short History of Nearly Everything and editing the Royal Society's 350th anniversary book, Seeing Further.
