Edinburgh International Science Festival
Quentin Cooper talks to Prof Colin Blakemore and Prof Chris Rapley about ideas in science that are 'dangerous'. Plus, what is the lasting value of science festivals?
Quentin Cooper is at the Edinburgh International Science Festival which runs until April 7th. With Professor Colin Blakemore and Professor Chris Rapley, he discusses "dangerous" ideas in science.
And what is the lasting value of science festivals? Are they any more than "feel-good" events for the committed? Quentin discusses this theme with Ian Wall - who claims to have invented the Science Festival over 20 years ago and - Keir Liddle of Edinburgh Skeptics, an organisation which runs science events alongside arts festivals, including the Edinburgh Fringe.
