Joseph Banks’ Florilegium: Botanical Treasures from Cook’s First Voyage

Hay Festival 2018, 

Joseph Banks accompanied Captain Cook on his first voyage round the world from 1768-1771. A gifted and wealthy young naturalist, Banks collected exotic flora from Madeira, Brazil, Tierra del Fuego, the Society Islands, New Zealand, Australia and Java, bringing back over 1,300 species that had never been seen or studied by Europeans. On his return, Banks commissioned more than 700 superlative engravings between 1772-1784. Known collectively as Banks’ Florilegium, they are some of the most precise and exquisite examples of botanical illustration ever created. Studholme introduces a selection of the images and explains the process of producing them.

Edzard Ernst talks to Rosie Boycott

SCAM

Hay Festival 2018, 

So-called alternative medicine (SCAM) is popular and therefore important, whether we love or loathe it. Consequently, an impressive number of books about SCAM are already available. Most of them, however, are woefully uncritical, overtly promotional and dangerously misleading. Not so this one. Edzard’s book was written by someone who received SCAM as a patient, practised SCAM as a doctor, and researched SCAM as a scientist. It provides an insider’s perspective by covering aspects of SCAM that most books avoid, and by questioning the many tacitly accepted assumptions and wild extrapolations that underpin SCAM. The text is factual, occasionally dosed with a touch of humour or satire. The aim is not only to inform but also to entertain – as he does in his other books Trick or Treatment, More Harm Than Good and A Scientist in Wonderland.

Skeletons: The Frame of Life

Hay Festival 2018, 

Over half a billion years ago life on Earth took an incredible step in evolution, when animals learned to build skeletons. Using many different materials, from calcium carbonate and phosphate, and even silica, to make shell and bone, they started creating the support structures that are now critical to most living forms, providing rigidity and strength. The Leicester University palaeobiologist explores the incredible variety of the skeleton innovations that have enabled life to expand into a wide range of niches and lifestyles on the planet. Discussing the impact of climate change, which puts the formation of some kinds of skeleton at risk, he also considers future skeletons – including the possibility that we might increasingly incorporate metal and plastic elements into our own – as well as the possible materials for skeleton building on other planets.
