Episode 140 – 15th June 2012

We speak to a number big names this week: Dan Dennett gives us his take on Alan Turing, former government chief science advisor Sir David King teases us about what really went on behind the scenes of the Iraq war, and Ben Hammersley explains why technology makes politics difficult. We also tackle Gove’s proposed new curriculum, archiving film for the future and find out if evangelical christian women really want to go out with Jesus?
