Lord Winston Visits BDA

Television presenter and IVF pioneer Lord Robert Winston dropped in on some science and maths classes at BDA this week, before giving a very interesting talk to a select group of students in the Dennis Potter Theatre.

The eminent professor, one of the world's most respected medical academics and researchers of the human reproductive system, lays claim to over 300 scientific publications and has presented several TV series, including: Superhuman, The Secret Life of Twins, Child of Our Time, Human Instinct and the BAFTA award winning The Human Body.

As well as delivering a fascinating lecture about how life begins, fertility and genetics, Lord Winston spoke with students about the inspiration he has found in society’s young population.

“You are our future. You are the most important people in our society,” he said.
