British Science Festival 2013: Victorian Science

How did scientists enthral audiences at their shows in the Victorian times? And was their understanding of science different to ours?
17 September 2013
Presented by Ginny Smith



The Victorian Science Spectacular came to Newcastle as part of the British Science Festival, and Ginny Smith went along to see what it was all about, and caught up with some of the performers afterwards. Dr Aileen Fyfe and Prof. Iwan Morus showed what new technologies the Victorians would have been astounded at, and discussed why we need to think about the past when doing science.
