Atul Gawande, Stephen Hawking, Daniel Barenboim, Grayson Perry, Hilary Mantel, Jeff Sachs, Anthony Appiah….. What do these have in common? They all have big ideas which is why they are all BBC Reith Lecturers. Why do some ideas take hold and others lie dormant? This seminar examines the power of ideas and asks how an idea emerges and changes how we think and then how we live.
