11: Eugenics and Tea with Daniel Maier

Galton was an eccentric genius, known as the father of both statistics and eugenics, who found time to invent the dog whistle, formulate the perfect cup of tea, discover anti-cyclones and draw up a map showing Britain’s highest concentrations of beautiful women. Here his life is explored with great humour and knowledge by
Daniel Maier, a comedy writer and voice artist who has been involved in three BAFTA-winning programmes and worked with Harry Hill, Alistair McGowan, Charlie Brooker, Al Murray and Ant and Dec to name but most. He has given his talk on the Victorian polymath Francis Galton to audiences at The Royal Statistical Society, The National Portrait Gallery and The Catalyst Club.
