Raynor Winn talks to Claire Armitstead

The Salt Path

Hay Festival 2019, 

The walker discusses her mesmerising and inspirational memoir: just days after Raynor learns that Moth, her husband of thirty-two years, is terminally ill, their home is taken away and they lose their livelihood. With nothing left and little time, they make the brave and impulsive decision to walk the 630 miles of the sea-swept South West Coast Path, from Somerset to Dorset, via Devon and Cornwall. Carrying only the essentials for survival on their backs, they live wild in the ancient, weathered landscape of cliffs, sea and sky. Yet through every step, every encounter and every test along the way, their walk becomes a remarkable journey.

Millennium, The Year 1000

Hay Festival 2000, 
Mystery and magicians, monks, warriors and wandering merchants- people who feared an apocolypse and people who had no idea what year is was or what lay beyond the nearest valley. People felt they walked hand-in-hand with God, and envisaged him so literally that even Christians were sometimes buried with supplies for the journey to the new life in heaven.

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.
