Synopsis

Another Point of View by Lisa Jardine

‘I want to use the moment as a springboard for some big ideas. I want to use the past and present to stimulate and challenge the listener and seduce them into thinking differently.’ Lisa Jardine

Provocative and inspirational, Lisa Jardine is one of our pre-eminent thinkers. A leading academic, she is a polymath who embraces both the arts and the sciences with equal passion and has that rare gift of being able to make her subject and her thinking accessible to a mainstream audience.

Lisa presents ‘A Point of View’ on Radio 4 on Sunday mornings, replacing Alistair Cooke’s ‘Letter From America’. Another Point of View is a collection of twenty-two of the hugely popular and critically-acclaimed talks from the programme, on subjects as wide-ranging and topical as commuting, national identity, Christmas, Latin, knife crime, the mortgage crisis and the credit crunch.

Reviews

'She creates a rich tapestry, weaving art and science, past and present. And she always seems to connect to something close to home.' - Carla Carlyle, Spectator
