  1. Video game architecture is full of secrets

    In video games like Control, Portal, and Dark Souls, architecture tells you everything that you need to know. Architecture in games — and in real life — can control the way that you move, and the way that you feel. So we asked some architects about their favorite uses of architecture in games, to find out how clever design can make games more immersive.

  2. Dr. Norman Borlaug with Julie Borlaug, Dr. Ronnie Coffman, and Dr. Ed Runge

    Dr. Norman Borlaug was an American agronomist who specialized in wheat breeding. Known as the Father of the Green Revolution, he helped other hunger fighters save hundreds of thousands of lives in Mexico, India, Pakistan, and other countries throughout his long and varied career. He won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1970 and founded the World Food Prize to celebrate other food fighters worldwide. This episode we speak with his granddaughter and colleague Julie Borlaug and fellow colleagues Dr. Ronnie Coffman and Dr. Ed Runge to discuss the “Man who Fed the World.”

  4. The Future of Fabrication

    Manufacturing and fabrication often evokes visions of endless conveyor belts of things made at large sale. For many things, this is indeed the way they are made, it is efficient, and this approach will largely continue. But increasingly we are also making small batches of things. This drive toward one-of manufacturing is fed no only by the desire for personalization, but also by efforts to uncover the next great niche thing, to innovate. 3-D printing has been the great enabler for this exploration in personalized and niche fabrication, and it has come a long way from the days of simple plastic layering. Now, 3-D printers commonly fabricate in all kinds of metals, but we can also print food stuffs and tissues for the body. The cutting edge for this technology is multi-material printers, with tremendous resolution and scale capabilities. These printers can materialize products from an expanding library of digital-first designs, with a variety of materials and at a level of production not possible with conventional milling. This is the gateway to the on-demand manufacturing economy, offering benefits including the digitization of inventory, flexible manufacturing across individual machines, and innovation accelerated by easy duplication, modification, and improvement. These benefits will be nurtured in the technologie…

  5. Eoghan Ó Ceannabháin Interview (Sean-nós, concertina, flute)

    Mitching classes to work on your music. Sean-nós: ‘My granny would have just called them songs.’ Tradition and change, art and technique and the soul of the thing. Writing in English, writing in Irish. Activism, collectivity and music as barriers against despair.

  7. The Great Irish Famine

    Melvyn Bragg and guests discuss why the potato crop failures in the 1840s had such a catastrophic impact in Ireland. It is estimated that one million people died from disease or starvation after the blight and another two million left the country within the decade. There had been famines before, but not on this scale. What was it about the laws, attitudes and responses that made this one so devastating?

  8. The Time Machine

    Melvyn Bragg and guests discuss the ideas explored in HG Wells’ novella, published in 1895, in which the Time Traveller moves forward to 802,701 AD. There he finds humanity has evolved into the Eloi and Morlocks, where the Eloi are small but leisured fruitarians and the Morlocks live below ground, carry out the work and have a different diet. Escaping the Morlocks, he travels millions of years into the future, where the environment no longer supports humanity.

  9. Alan Turing

    Melvyn Bragg and guests discuss Alan Turing (1912-1954) whose 1936 paper On Computable Numbers effectively founded computer science. Immediately recognised by his peers, his wider reputation has grown as our reliance on computers has grown. He was a leading figure at Bletchley Park in the Second World War, using his ideas for cracking enemy codes, work said to have shortened the war by two years and saved millions of lives. That vital work was still secret when Turing was convicted in 1952 for having a sexual relationship with another man for which he was given oestrogen for a year, or chemically castrated. Turing was to kill himself two years later. The immensity of his contribution to computing was recognised in the 1960s by the creation of the Turing Award, known as the Nobel of computer science, and he is to be the new face on the £50 note.
