TAMED: with Professor Alice Roberts

How do you tame wildness?

For hundreds of thousand of years our ancestors existed in a world where they depended on wild plants and animals. They were hunter-gatherers - consummate survival experts, but taking the world as they found it.

Then a revolution happened: we started to domesticate wild species and they became crucial to our own survival and success. Join Alice Roberts as she delves into archaeology, history and genetics to reveal the amazing stories of the species that became our allies. From dogs, cattle and horses to wheat, potatoes and apples, find out how taming all these species has left its mark - on us. This is the perfect event for all the family.

Professor Alice Roberts currently presents Digging for Britain on BBC2 and has been on Channel 4’s Time Team. She wrote and presented a range of television series for BBC2, including The Incredible Human Journey, Origins of Us and Ice Age Giants, as well as several Horizon programmes. She has written seven popular science books, one of which The Incredible Unlikeliness of Being, was shortlisted for the Wellcome Book Prize 2015.
