Professor Mary Beard

Mary Beard, Professor of Classics at Newnham College, Cambridge, is Britain’s best known classicist.

For over a decade Mary has been bringing the Romans to life through her much-loved TV programmes.

Her scholarly but accessible style has made her hugely popular in print and on the screen, from Meet The Romans to her 2015 bestseller SPQR and most recently one of the authors and presenters of the BBC's Civilisations series.

Professor Beard will be discussing what happens to history on television, reflecting on different styles of TV history both nationally and internationally, and asking does the historian and TV director have to compromise?
