Julian Huxley & The Big Questions

There was an interesting programme on BBC Radio 4 on Saturday in their Archive on 4 series that I heard by accident. It is an assessment of the life of Julian Huxley by Jim Al-Khalili, with contributions by Desmond Morris and others. It can be heard on listen again for seven days. It includes his ideas on progress in evolution, and on eugenics and race, and on the difficulties of combining popular presentation of science with academic respectability.

Another programme worth watching is last Sunday's "The Big Questions" which was on the King James Bible, with Richard Dawkins and co. It is available for a week on iPlayer. There is also a YouTube version which may be around for longer.
