In the mid-1980s the BBC recorded a number of in-depth interviews with Nobel Prize-winning scientists. These interviews were never broadcast, but have been rediscovered in the BBC archives and are now available online.
The interviewees include:
- Dr Frederick Sanger – awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1958 and 1980. (Dr Sanger is the only living person to have been awarded two Nobel prizes.)
- Professor Ernest Walton – awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1958 for his work on the transmutation of atomic nuclei by artificially accelerated atomic particles.
- Lord Alexander Todd – awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1957 for his work on nucleotides and nucleotide co-enzymes.
