Is Human Evolution Over?

Hay Festival 1999, 
Utopian novels used to show ordinary people living in extraordinary societies. Now, the people change, but society stays the same (think of Star Trek) - because everyonw assumes that evolution is speeding up. In the first Predictions Lecture the great geneticist argues that this is untrue; that evolution has stopped; and that when it comes to our bodies, if not our minds, we are living in Utopia now.

Winging It

Hay Festival 2018, 

Joining the parenting club in our thirties and beyond means that we are spinning an extraordinary amount of plates, often including a career at its peak. Most of us co-parent or fly solo in the true sense of the word, relying solely on our partners and/or friends when, more often than not, extended family are too far away to help on a regular basis. Our parents could look to their parents for the usual guidance and extra support, but our situation is new, modern and unique. We are winging it! The One Show star shares what happens when the best thing ever comes later than planned...
