A few weeks ago i was fortunate to go along to a great talk at Sage Gateshead (a most impressive building btw) as part of the Free Thinking festival which hosts a variety of discussions recorded for BBC Radio 3 programme called… you guessed it… Free Thinking. Sadly we only had time to attend one talk but i’d certainly like to go another year as the range of topics being discussed were fantastic.
The topic under consideration at the talk i attended was whether the rush of adrenaline makes us think better? The panel consisted of 1996 F1 world champion Damon Hill, Tanni Grey-Thompson (16 Paralympic medals during her career (including 11 golds) and won the London Marathon six times) and former British army Colonel Lincoln Jopp ( served for 27 years, commanding in conflict zones around the world).
The talk was recorded and can be heard HERE via a BBC podcast.
I did manage to get a photo at the end, though my choice of a wideangle lens wasn’t exactly ideal – it was just on the camera when i left the house! Not a bad shot though 🙂
