FT Science with Clive Cookson
  • AS Byatt, ants and the RI Christmas lectures Aug 31, 2010 - 5:00 pm
  • In this week's podcast: We introduce a new feature to the podcast, that of how literature and the arts are influenced by science and scientists. We start this week by hearing from novelist AS Byatt about her passion for science and how this passion permeates her writing.

    Guest in the studio is materials scientist Mark Miodownik, who has just been named this year's RI Christmas lecturer. He talks about scale and self-healing materials.

    Science Mag's contribution is all about ants and epigenetics.
