Where Do I Come From?
Professor Alice Roberts takes us on a journey to answer this most fundamental question: Who Am I? With 4D scanning, animal guests, giant origami, and a ukulele, the Christmas Lectures will explore evolution like never before. Joined by armadillos, sharks, fruit flies, and glowing bacteria, Alice reveals the surprising similarities that we share with other species, and finds our true place in the tree of life. Together with geneticist Prof Aoife McLysaght, they delve deep into our cells to discover how our genes connect us to every life form on the planet, no matter how weird and wonderful.
