For the BHA, chaired by Richard Dawkins February 12th London.
How to make a human: Embryological and evolutionary development of a human, Presented by Professor Alice Roberts and chaired by Professor Richard Dawkins

It’s the closest we ever come, as humans, to a transformation as profound as that from a caterpillar into a butterfly. In the first two months of our existence, each of us changed from a single egg to a flat disc, to a hollow tube, to a little creature with stumpy arms and legs, to something that looked recognisably human. And in the course of that embryological development, there were echoes of earlier stages of evolution, harking back to very ancient ancestors - ancestors we share with insects, fish, amphibians and reptiles.

That sounds so interesting, but why is a woman like Alice Roberts appearing with a blatant sexist like Dawkins?
