Join Andre Geim in conversation with Roger Highfield at the Hay Festival 2015.

In 2010 Sir Andre Geim FRS was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics for his ground-breaking work on the material graphene.

More unusually, he’s also known for inventing an adhesive tape based on geckos and for levitating live frogs.

Geim talks about his prize-winning work and how his atypical approach to science and life led him to it.
