Presented by John Maddox
' We felt that the purpose of zoology was not just to prove Darwin right - we thought that that had been done already, and it was time we found out how animals worked.' In the 1930s Professor J. Z. Young was one of the originators of this new approach to zoology. It has led him from investigations of the nervous system to speculation on the function of consciousness. Tonight Professor Young talks to John Maddox about his life and work. Editor GEOFF DEEHAN
