Join the writer and evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins at the Royal Festival Hall, where he will be discussing the evolution of his work from 'The Selfish Gene' (1976) and 'The Blind Watchmaker' (1986), through to 'Climbing Mount Improbable' (1996) and 'The God Delusion' (2006).

Dawkins is best known for dismissing God, and debunking religious beliefs, but his theories have also sent ripples through the worlds of science and popular culture, inspiring several generations of thinkers.
