This talk forms part of the Morley College Penny Lecture
series. Penny Lectures began in 1882 at The Old Vic theatre
in Waterloo. Topics were chosen to encourage new thinking
and ideas and provided illustrated lectures at affordable
prices…a penny! The lectures were a huge success and quickly
led to the establishment of 'Morley Memorial College' for
Working Men and Women. Now celebrating its 125th
anniversary, the college has revived the Penny Lecture
series for a new generation.
