The Best of Four Thought

1 hour
First broadcast:
Wednesday 12 September 2012

The best of Four Thought - personal storytelling combined with thought provoking ideas, introduced by David Baddiel.

Four Thought is a series of talks which combine thought provoking ideas and engaging storytelling. Recorded in front of an audience at the Royal Society of Arts in London, speakers take to the stage to air their latest thinking on the trends, ideas, interests and passions that affect our culture and society.

The four talks in this programme are from:
Joe Dunthorne on what we could all learn about living together from the mosh pit at a rock gig,
David Bainbridge on the myth of middle age,
Anthony McGowan on being the villain of our own story, and
Christina Patterson on care and nursing.

(The repeat programme on 15/09/12 is shorter than the programme at 20h00 on 12/09/12 and will not contain the talk from David Bainbridge).
