Talking Humanities

The Durrells, the ITV series based on the late Gerald Durrell’s book: My Family and Other Animals, is now in its second year. Professor Keith Somerville, a recently appointed member of the Durrell Institute of Conservation and Ecology at the University of Kent, explores the British naturalist, writer and film-maker’s legacy not just on his own life but also modern-day global conservation.

Talking Humanities is the School of Advanced Study's flagship digital publication and covers groundbreaking humanities research throughout the UK.
