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).
"The Battle of Ideas goes from strength to strength. The intensity, variety and depth of debate, sustained for an entire weekend, makes for a unique experience charging the intellectual batteries for the rest of the year."
