Thanks to all who joined us for our annual philanthropy event last night as we joined Professor Alice Roberts in conversation with Miranda Krestovnikoff.
From Alice’s early love of anthropology to their first presenting roles and their near-death experiences on the job, their obvious connection resulted in a friendly, lively and insightful conversation. Nura Aabe from Autism Independence and Ruth Jackson from Bluebell Care Trust joined them on stage. As founders with lived experience they spoke passionately about their backgrounds and the need for their services.
The three things everyone learned on the night were that TV producers sometimes like to scare presenters, the Somali language doesn’t have a word for autism, and to avoid A&E in the first week of August.
Missed the event? You can catch Alice in Britain’s most Historic Towns – which will be back for a second series beginning this Saturday on Channel 4.
