An Audience With...

Jonathan Miller is unique. He has made a huge impact on British culture through the medium of television, radio, theatre and opera. Straddling the great divide between the arts and the sciences he is a brilliant humorist, a qualified doctor, a practising artist and a renowned director.

As a creator of the seminal comedy revue Beyond the Fringe Jonathan's writing helped launch the careers of Peter Cook, Dudley Moore and Alan Bennett. His talents and interests encompass many areas, from neuropsychology (he wrote and presented the controversial BBC documentary series The Body in Question) to the arts, atheism, criticism and comedy. Rarely a man to say no, Sir Jonathan says that his reputation as a polymath rests on 'being pathetically susceptible to someone knocking on my door with a frisbee in their hand saying "Do you want to come out and play?".'
