Conway Hall Ethical Society presents

Conway Memorial Lecture - Lisa Jardine: Things I Never Knew about my Father

Lisa Jardine talks about her father, the late Jacob Bronowski, who delivered his own Conway Memorial Lecture 60 years ago, on 23 March 1954.

Prof Jardine will talk about his life, and some interesting hidden facets to her humanist father that have only come to light in recent times.

Here's an interview with Jacob Bronowski in 1974 with Michael Parkinson. http://youtu.be/DFgnGUL78MU
