In an interest to investigate the ways science-related subjects are presented on television, we are pleased to invite Zoe Heron, Series Producer of Horizon, the BBC’s longest running popular science series. Horizon has just celebrated its 50th year of broadcasting and in this event Director’s Cut series host, Professor Alan Marcus, and Zoe Heron will delve into some of Horizon's most provocative and innovative episodes she and her colleagues have produced.  In addition to overseeing the production of Horizon programmes such as ‘Allergies: Modern Life and Me’, ‘Is Your Brain Male or Female’?, ‘What’s Wrong with our Weather?’ and ‘Defeating the Hackers’, Zoe produced the BBC series Rise of the Continents (2013), Origins of Us (2011) and Battlefield Britain (2004).  This event is being organised during National Science Week and funded in collaboration with the University of Aberdeen’s College of Physical Sciences.

Each March the British Science Association Aberdeen Branch brings you dozens of events to celebrate the UK's only national festival of science.

The programme has events for people of all ages and interests including talks and activity days. There is a full programme of events taking place from the 13th to the 22nd of March around Aberdeen.
