Attenborough on Wallace

attenboroughFor those who missed it at SVP, or indeed missed SVP, Sir David Attenborough FRS gave a public talk on Alfred Russel Wallace and the birds of paradise. Sir David has a particular interest in these avians so it was a real pleasure to hear him speak on the subject and to answer questions at the end of the talk – he’s a quite exceptional lecturer. For those who want to hear him, the talk was one of a series celebrating 100 years of the University of Bristol, and the whole thing is available to watch online here, so go and enjoy it.

    Despite its perhaps valient heritage, it was pretty clear that Bristol has become something of a carousing party town. Our nights were filled with the screaming of sirens and drunking mating cries of students.

      There were no students there during SVP – they didn’t arrive until this week. That was the locals. Well, ‘locals’ who mostly invade Bristol from the rest of the South West…
