The Lives of Evidence National Lecture Series
See links to all parts below.

Many questions are raised in light of the recent warnings about the “the death of evidence” and "War on Science". What do we mean by “evidence”? How is evidence interpreted, represented and communicated? How do we create trust in research? What's the relationship between research, funding and policy? Between evidence, explanations and expertise?
