Henrietta Bowden-Jones

Michael Berkeley's guest is neuroscientist and psychiatrist Henrietta Bowden-Jones. Her musical choices include Mozart, Dvorak and Reynaldo Hahn's Venetian songs.

Henrietta Bowden-Jones has spent the last three decades studying the mind.

Born in Italy to an English father and an Italian mother, she has dedicated her career to helping people overcome addictions - both in the lab as a researcher in neuroscience, and as a psychiatrist treating everyone from homeless drug addicts to city traders with gambling problems.

She shares with Michael Berkeley musical memories of growing up in Milan with an opera-loving nanny; the shock of being sent to an English boarding school as a teenager; her love of art as well as science; and how her pioneering work on addiction has helped thousands of people rebuild their lives.

Her music choices include Mozart, Dvorak and Reynaldo Hahn's charming Venetian songs.
