"To boldly go where no one has gone before..."
Adam talks to historian and writer Duncan Barrett about his book Star Trek: The Human Frontier, which discusses what Star Trek in its many forms has to say about values, philosophy, and what it means to be human.
Amongst other things, Duncan explains why Star Trek is essentially Hornblower in space, and the surprising connection between Deep Space Nine and the Occupation of the Channel Islands.
At the 2019 Guernsey Literary Festival Adam spoke to Anne Allen, author of a series of books called The Guernsey Novels.
Anne describes her books as escapist, holiday reads - most feature romance, and mystery, and many have a historical angle. Her latest is The Inheritance, a dual time story featuring Victor Hugo.
In this interview Anne explains her connection to Guernsey, why she always wanted to write about Victor Hugo, and how her previous career as a psychotherapist influences her writing.
At the 2019 Guernsey Literary Festival, Adam talks to journalist and broadcaster Lucy Siegle about her book 'Turning the Tide on Plastic: How Humanity (And You) Can Make the Globe Clean Again'.
Lucy outlines some simple steps everyone can take to reduce their plastic footprint, ponders whether Guernsey could become a plastic free island, and explains why single use plastic is actually much less convenient than it seems.
