The 1940s ushered in the Golden Age of antibiotics. Dr Selman Waksman of Rutgers University did pioneering work in the field and eventually discovered streptomycin, which earned him hundreds of thousands of dollars in patent payoffs, countless accolades over decades and eventually the Nobel Prize. Only he did not really discover streptomycin alone and therein lies one of the most fascinating and tragic stories of ego, money and hard science of the 20th Century. Join us tonight when we talk with PETER PRINGLE, writer and foreign correspondent, about his new book EXPERIMENT ELEVEN: DARK SECRETS BEHIND THE DISCOVERY OF A WONDER DRUG.
In the early years of the 19th Century, a loose association of poets, writers, publishers and radicals created the heart and soul of Britain’s Romantic movement. This circle of acquaintances included Lord Byron, Keats, and Mary Shelley but also many people not as well known outside of Britain. These included luminaries like Leigh Hunt, the publisher of The Examiner, a sort of Huffington Post of its day. These artists wandered throughout Britain and Europe and led wild, unpredictable and amorous lives as they wrote. Their history reads like a hallucinatory soap opera. Tonight on Inquiry, we talk with DAISY HAY, who has a doctorate in English Literature from the University of Cambridge and is the Alistair Horne Fellow at St. Anthony’s College, Oxford. Her new book, YOUNG ROMANTICS: THE TANGLED LIVES OF ENGLISH POETRY’S GREATEST GENERATION is a mesmerizing and endlessly entertaining history of these unique writers and poets.
