'I want to use the moment as a springboard for some big ideas.
I want to use the past and present to stimulate and challenge the listener and seduce them into thinking differently.' Lisa JardineProvocative and inspirational, Lisa Jardine is one of our pre-eminent thinkers.
A leading academic, she is a polymath who embraces both the arts and the sciences with equal passion and has that rare gift of being able to make her subject and her thinking accessible to a mainstream audience.
Lisa presents 'A Point of View' on Radio 4 on Sunday mornings, replacing Alistair Cooke's 'Letter From America'.
Another Point of View is a collection of twenty-two of the hugely popular and critically-acclaimed talks from the programme, on subjects as wide-ranging and topical as commuting, national identity, Christmas, Latin, knife crime, the mortgage crisis and the credit crunch. The book contains drawings by Nick Wadley.
