Series 2: Big Thinkers

The scientific community has an obligation to explain and champion the role of science in all decisions that affect society. Even when the science is complex and contradicts popularly held ideas, it can help in framing the issues, explaining complexity and proposing possible options. Big Thinkers convenes internationally renowned scientific experts as it presents thought-provoking discussions on the pressing events of our times. Hosted by Australian media personality Nuala Hafner, the conversational episodes will entertain and inform viewers on the most notable scientific issues that society faces today.
