Elizabeth Bruton on “Seven Ages of Science”

Our post-doctoral researcher, Elizabeth Bruton, appeared on Lisa Jardine’s series “Seven Ages of Science” on BBC Radio 4 on 10 September discussing the complex relationship between military demands and science in World War One and in the Inter-War years.

The episode, “Age of War”, began with a discussion of how military demands mobilised science not in World War II, but in World War I.  The episode continued with an exploration of the impact of the military on science and vice versa between World War One and the Cold War.
