Presenter of the BBC’s The Incredible Human Journey Dr Alice Roberts takes a highly accessible look at our own bodies, showing how we develop from a single egg into a complex body and how our embryos contain echoes of our evolutionary past. Roberts uses the latest scientific discoveries to demonstrate that our bodies are far from perfect, a mix of new and old with strokes of genius and imperfections, all inherited from the past.
Roberts is renowned for making science accessible and has presented The Incredible Human Journey and Coast on BBC2 and Inside Science on BBC Radio 4. Her latest series, Ice Age Giants, recently aired on BBC2. Roberts is professor of public engagement in science at Birmingham University and brings together a range of skills and qualifications as a doctor, anatomist, osteoarchaeologist, anthropologist and writer. She is author of several books, including Don’t Die Young and The Incredible Human Journey.
