Lifting the lid - the Royal Society since 1960

Join Dr Peter Collins to explore the Royal Society’s fascinating journey from post war to present day.

The Royal Society may be one of the world’s oldest and most prestigious scientific bodies, but what has it done in the last 50 years?

In post-war Britain science was growing and public interest was surging, but the Royal Society struggled to find a place for itself in this changing world. Its survival strategy was to look beyond itself: championing research excellence, providing the independent advice governments needed, fostering international scientific relations and inspiring public interest in science. But just how did the Royal Society do this and who helped to make it happen?

Join Dr Peter Collins, Emeritus Director of the Royal Society, to delve deeper into the Society’s recent history and explore its fascinating journey from 1960 to the present day.
