Can you believe it? 40 years of the Science Show! I’ve been listening to this show for as long as I can remember. For me it defines the ABC and public radio and keeps me up to date with some of the most interesting and important happenings from around the world. And for the last two or three generations Robyn Williams is synonymous with that. In Love with Betty the Crow: the First 40 Years of the Science Show is book that encapsulates all that, and is one of the most anticipated books of the year for us.
Robyn Williams reflects on why science matters, after 40 years of ABC RN’s The Science Show. The Science Show with Robyn Williams on Radio National is one of the longest running programs on Australian radio. Scientific issues, debates, events, personalities, exposing scientific fraud, discoveries and broadcasting pranks have been its hallmarks, and the show has given Australians fascinating insights into all manner of things. In this lively account of forty years of The Science Show, Robyn reveals in his inimitable style why science is important – touching on topics like the flakes and the heroes, propaganda, cosmic revolutions, our relationship with animals, women in science, and of course, the environment. Informative, entertaining and memorable, this is a book that is a must read for anyone who is interested in ideas and the truth.
