Event Details

Mary Beard & Simon Schama 

Two of Britain’s best-loved historians take us behind the scenes of how documentaries are made, and explore their enduring appeal. Author of 20 books, Simon Schama has written and presented more than 50 films for the BBC – most recently, the History of Now series. Classicist Mary Beard, too, has hosted hugely popular programmes, including Meet The Romans. Civilisations, which they co-presented, recounts the history of world art and was labelled by the Washington Post as “compulsory viewing for a new generation of viewers”.
