Dr Adam Rutherford

A brief history of everyone who ever lived

Of all the historical texts available to us, none is richer than the one we carry inside every cell. Geneticist, author and broadcaster Dr Adam Rutherford explores how understanding DNA has helped to re-paint the picture of the human story.

A science writer and presenter, Dr Rutherford is a geneticist who is Honorary Research Fellow at University College London. His books include the award-winning Creation and more recently and to much acclaim, A Brief History of Everyone Who Ever Lived. He has presented many science programmes on the BBC, including Inside Science, The Gene Code and the 2014 series of Horizon. His talk will be on genetics.
