Lord Robert Winston talks about god and Dawkins

#1  Postby quisquose » Dec 21, 2011 7:03 pm

I'm really enjoying the radio series The Life Scientific where Jim Al-Khalili talks to various scientists. The latest one is rather interesting in that it has Lord Robert Winston avoiding questions about whether he really believes in god, and why he was critical of Dawkins.

The relevant bit starts at 22:30, but the whole programme deserves a listen:

He's the man on the telly with the big moustache, famous for A Child of Our Time, The Human Body and Making Babies but Robert Winston is also a well respected scientist. He played a pioneering role in developing IVF technology, and has brought life to many hundreds of couples who had given up hope of ever having a baby . Jim Al-Khalili talks to Robert Winston about why he quit the theatre to become a medic, creating human life in a test tube and why he disagrees with Richard Dawkins about The God Delusion.

this is the message I got:

Programmes are generally only available on BBB iPlayer for 7 days.

Some of them are archived, and fortunately The Life Scientific is one of the series of programmes that is:

Unfortunately this is the only programme in the series that is not there.
