Adam Wishart is a TV producer and director who has worked on Tomorrow’s World and Horizon. The Price of Life, broadcast in June 2009, was described by The Guardian as ‘the best single film of the year so far’. He won the Grierson Award for the Best Science Documentary in 2006 for Monkeys, Rats and Me about animal rights and experimentation. He has previously won a Royal Television Society Award.
He writes occasionally for the broadsheets. He published One in Three: a son’s journey into the history and science of cancer (Profile Books 2006), and Leaving Reality Behind: the battle for the soul of the internet (4th Estate, 2002).
"Just when Kant's formulation that 'the public exercise of reason should be free' had begun to seem so remote and exhausted, the Battle should reinforce one's faith in the enduring worth of dissent and of the free traffic in ideas"
