Steve Jones

Here Comes the Sun

Hay Festival 2017, 
It was fifty years ago on Thursday Sergeant Pepper taught the band to play and the fiftieth anniversary of the Beatles' Abbey Road is just two years away. Steve Jones plans to jump on the bandwagon and is hard at work on a book named after its most famous track, George Harrison's Here Comes the Sun. It will say something about his own research on the ecology of sunlight and its effects on evolution in many creatures (ourselves included) but most of all will concentrate on how modern men and women (particularly the younger ones) have, since Abbey Road abandoned life under blue skies in favour of staying indoors, with potentially alarming effects on their health and happiness. Even though it will certainly be raining when he gives his talk, Steve Jones hopes that he can illuminate a field that does not get the attention it deserves".
