Professor Brian Cox finds out more about the history of science with the help of some famous Royal Society Fellows.
Back in January the Royal Society launched a series with the BBC in which Professor Brian Cox talks to Fellows including Sir David Attenborough, Uta Frith and Bill Bryson about their scientific inspiration. The People of Science series is now available to view internationally.
The archive items featured in each People of Science films can be explored on our Google Arts & Culture page. Louisiane has written a brilliant post about this on The Repository blog which explains how Google Arts & Culture works and highlights some of her favourite exhibits.
