Jonathan Miller: A Reasonable Life – 7.30pm, Friday 19 October, Bishopsgate Institute, London EC2M 4QH

What do Alan Bennett, Rigoletto, the New Yorker, neuropsychology, The Taming of the Shrew, John Cleese, Alice in Wonderland and the history of atheism have in common?

They have all featured in the extraordinary, uncategorisable career of Sir Jonathan Miller.

In a sixty-year career spanning Beyond The Fringe, medicine, numerous books and articles, directing hundreds of TV and stage plays and operas, and presenting some of the most vibrant and intelligent television documentaries ever – like the ground-breaking The Body in Question – Jonathan Miller is a true one-off.
