People of Science with Brian Cox: Uta Frith

The pioneering developmental psychologist Uta Frith discusses Alice Lee, whose work in craniology challenged the idea that women were intellectually inferior because they have smaller brain sizes.

In the People of Science interview series, Professor Brian Cox is joined by Royal Society Fellows who reveal their favourite scientists in history. 

Each episode showcases artefacts from the Royal Society’s archive, helping to bring their stories alive. The archive items featured in each film can be explored on Google’s Cultural Institute and you can also read articles by Alice Lee published by the Royal Society.
