Human Instinct

Hay Festival 2003, 
The conscious and unconscious decisions we make are deeply affected by an ancient and universal genetic programme. Our ambition and lust, our drives to compete and to co-operate are essential components of the human mind, forged among our ancestors on the African savannah. Instincts were instrumental in the evolutionary success of the species and success meant a fondness for sex and violence, for status and wealth, and a will to survive. Lord Winston is the pre-eminent professor of reproductive medicine in Britain.

Winter Wayfaring

Winter Weekend 2018, 

In his extraordinary travelogue Something of his Art: Walking to Lübeck with J S Bach, Clare recreates the walk that J S Bach, then an unknown composer and organ teacher, made in the depths of winter in 1705 across Germany to Lübeck. This was the pivotal point in the young composer’s life, when he began his journey to becoming the master of the Baroque. Clare’s second 2018 publication is The Light in The Dark: a moving and lyrical evocation of a British winter and the feelings it inspires. The writer raises a torch against the darkness, illuminating the blackest corners of the season, and delving into memory and myth to explore the powerful hold that winter has on us. Chaired by Dylan Moore.
