The Infinite Monkey Cage: Risk
The first in a new series from science-meets-comedy show hosted by comedian Brian Ince and Professor Brian Cox, this episode focuses on Risk.
Apart from answering asking questions such as, is the UK actually safer now than in the 1970s?, the programme also highlights the emotional rather than rational approach to risk that is often adopted:
Risk and perception.
Risk assessments and Health and Safety culture.
How safe is nuclear power?
How worried should we be by the threat of catastrophic events?
A witty and alternative take on Risk - listen here on BBC Radio iPlayer:
