DECODING THE SECRETS OF THE AIR

Science writer Sam Kean traces the origins and ingredients of our atmosphere in Caesar’s Last Breath. This fascinating investigation shows how what we breathe has shaped human progress, been the catalyst for revolutions and influences everything we do. Air pollution in the UK is estimated to shorten the lives of around 40,000 people a year so our understanding of this invisible life force is vital. Chaired by Jane Macnaughton from Durham University.
