Horizon - Man and Science Today

A lecture by Sebastian B.J.Z. de Ferranti, D.Sc. from the Royal Institution, London
Sebastian de Ferranti runs a family business which relies on turning technological invention into a saleable product. He believes that in Britain opportunities are being neglected to turn our inventive abilities into commercial successes and that we in this country are losing our self-determination.
De Ferranti has chosen to present his arguments in a celebrated building, where in the past two centuries many crucial scientific inventions have been demonstrated: the Royal Institution. This discourse took place a few weeks ago before an audience of members and their guests.
