UCL IOE Ask a Professor Blog - audio of leading experts, including PESGB's own Judith Suissa and John White.

'What do we need to know?' -  The remarkable mind that brought you QI, Blackadder and Spitting Image asks one of the world’s simplest but most significant questions – what do we really need to know? What should we teach our children, and what important information should all adults have at their disposal? Legendary producer John Lloyd turns his curiosity to knowledge itself, and questions whether intelligence is really all it's cracked up to be.
