Hay Festival 2012, 
In this second conversation about our big anniversary project the panel discuss two of the 25 Questions:
 
Do you think we are reaching a point at which technological 'progress' kills the spirit and what we are, or will it liberate us all?
 
25 years ago, the whole world lived in fear of an aids pandemic, the Berlin wall divided east and Western Europe, China and Latin America were considered part of the developing world and less than 1% of the world’s population used mobile phones or computers. What changes will we see to the way we live now in 25 years time?

The Shakespeare Dictionary

Hay Festival 2015, 

Shakespeare is the best and most creative writer of the English language of all time. He deploys the widest and most thrilling vocabulary, drawing on classical and biblical scholarship and the keenest ear for human speech ever bent. And where the words he needed didn’t exist, he invented them. The classical actor and his father, the great Linguistics professor, entertain us with the most vital language ever used.
