The Changing Face of Jesus

Hay Festival 2000, 
Starting with John's gospel, and its wholly idealized and defied images of Jesus, Vermes then looks at Paul, whose first depiction of a redeemer figure is directed essentially at non-Jews. Another 'face' is seen through the acts of the Apostles, that of teh final prophet and the end of time. Finally, the synoptic gospels each paint their own portrait of a Galilean preacher, healer and exorcist.

John Waller

Fabulous Science: Exploding Myths in the History of Scientific Discovery

Hay Festival 2003, 
Louis Pasteur suppressed 'awkward' data because it didn't support the case he was making. George Mendel, the supposed 'founder of genetics' never grasped the fundamental principles of 'Mendelian' genetics. Joseph Lister's famously clean hospital wards were actually notoriously dirty. Drawing on history of science scholarship, Waller shows that many of our greatest heroes of science were less than honest about the experimental data and not above using friends in high places to help get their ideas accepted.
