He says in it that he's noticed the European newspapers carrying accounts of this, and he writes the Royal Society to give a true account of the experiment. He begins by telling Fellows how to construct a kite made of silk, because of course a paper kite would fall apart in a thunder storm, and then the experiment is conducted, culminating in Franklin holding his knuckle close to the key tied to the kite and the hairs on the back of his knuckle standing up, and then he realises that lightning is of an electrical nature." 19.

Born in South Africa in 1929, Lewis Wolpert is a developmental biologist, author and broadcaster. He proposed the French Flag model, explaining positional information in development. Made a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1980, he received a CBE in 1990. [Listener: Eleanor Lawrence] TRANSCRIPT: The chick limb work went... went well... it’s controversial, it’s certainly even now today not solved. And, you know, I had excellent PhD students and we had a very happy... happy group at the Middlesex Hospital Medical School. And then, in 1973, Waddington put me up for the Royal Society, and that’s a great compliment to be put up as a... become a possible Fellow of the Royal Society and you’re put up in the first instance for seven years and each year some committee looks at you and decides whether to accept you. And after six years I hadn’t been accepted and Waddington had died in the meantime and other people were... were involved, and then I must say, to my enormous pleasure, I became elected a Fellow in 1980 and in fact it was Peter Medawar, who phoned my secretary — Maureen Maloney — who I work with very closely, to say that I had, in fact, been elected. I can’t tell you how important it is to be elected a Fellow of the Royal Society. And when you become elected and you sit on the committees which try and decide who will be elected, you cannot get over the idea that you have been elected, because it’s so competitive, so... there are so many candidates and there are so few who actually become elected, there’re only 40 or so P... scientists a year, that get elected, but it is an enormous honour and it makes a very, very big difference and I was very, very grateful that I did in fact, become elected and I was on various committees of the Royal Society and that... that has been really quite important to me. And, of course, at this time, while I was doing all this science, I became involved in a different issue altogether and that is the actual relationship between science and the public, because what struck me, is how little science my non-scientific friends understood. And I gave a set of lectures — I don’t know why they invited me — in Warwick and on the base of those lectures I wrote a book called 'the'Unnatural Nature of Science', which I’m still very fond of that book, pointing out that any common sense view, that anyone has about the nature of the world, it will be scientifically false. It... Is it not against all common sense, that when you’re going at 400 miles an hour in an aeroplane, there is no force acting on you? Force does not cause motion, it causes acceleration. That’s as Newton pointed out, but it’s so counterintuitive as to be absolutely bizarre, and when it comes to complicated things like cells or molecules or quantum mechanics, things become absolutely impossible; science really is unnatural. And I think it’s very important that people really realise that science doesn’t fit easily with common sense. I know it’s been argued, and I... argued, that science is organised common sense, but it’s very highly organised common sense. And I really... that was the second book. I’d also written a book... 'The Triumph of the Embryo'. I was married to Jill Neville, a writer at the time, and she persuaded me to give it that title and it was for the general public that I wrote this book about how embryos develop. It was too complicated, they didn’t... the general public didn’t really... didn’t really understand it and I also, in those days, was doing interviews on the radio and I interviewed many, many major scientists... oh, Francis Crick, Sydney Brenner, all sorts of people and we published these — Oxford University Press — I’m delighted to say, published this. I did these interviews with Alison Richards, we travelled around the world and they were published in two volumes called 'A Passion for Science' and 'Passionate Minds' and I want to say, I think they’re a... a very nice... nice set of interviews. And then, about 15 years ago, I got a very severe depression. I still don’t understand why I became depressed. I was happily married, I was a professor at the university, I was 65 years old, everything was fine. I was having a minor heart problem, but I went into a very severe depression and was even hospitalised at the Royal Free for three weeks, because I was suicidal. I knew nothing about depression and I eventually recovered, I was put on antidepressants and I had... I also had cognitive therapy. And I eventually got better. I was living in this very flat where we’re sit... sitting now, and when I was ill, I discovered that my wife at that time — Jill Neville — never told anyone that I was depressed, she said the stigma will be too bad. And I thought, that’s bloody ridiculous... read the rest of the transcript at (https://www.webofstories.com/play/lewis.wolpert/17)

Technology for dogs with important jobs exhibit at the Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition 2014. Clara Mancini, Research Fellow in Human/Animal-Computer Interaction and Pervasive Computing, at the Computing Department of The Open University. The Animal-Computer Interaction (ACI) Laboratory was founded to expand the boundaries of interaction design beyond the human species. The team investigates the interaction between animals and technology, design technology to support animals in different contexts, and develop user-centred approaches to the design of technology intended for animals. Their aim is to improve animal and human wellbeing, social inclusion, interspecies cooperation and environmental restoration. In collaboration with the University of Lincoln, Medical Detection Dogs and Dogs for the Disabled, this exhibit focused on work to design interactive technologies to support working (eg assistance, cancer detection, medical alert, search-and-rescue) dogs, whose welfare and performance could significantly benefit from the support of technology designed from a canine-centred perspective. The Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition 2014 was held 1-6 July 2014 at the Royal Society in London. Find out more: http://sse.royalsociety.org/2014/

Who are the British people? Where did they come from and how have they changed since the end of the ice age, when modern humans first came to the British Isles? How different are the people of Cornwall from those of Orkney or of East Anglia? Why are they different and what determines the differences? Professor Peter Donnelly FMedSci FRS from the Genetic maps exhibit taking part in the 2012 Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition discusses his work.
