UCL Lunch Hour Lecture

Love, death and the pursuit of happiness: How evolution invented Hollywood. Professor John Galloway (UCL/UCLH Biomedical Research Centre & Eastman Dental Hospital)

If Darwinian evolution made us, it seems no great step to supposing it also made our most treasured institutions. And what institution is more treasured than the great dream machine of Hollywood, with its stock-in-trade, both on and off set, of sexual chemistry, violent death, and happy endings. Evolution is surely the ghost in that particular machine?
