    RIP Heinz Wolff

    Part of my childhood has just left the stage :-

    Heinz Wolff, Great Egg Race presenter and scientist, dies - BBC News

    I grew up on programs like Young Scientist of the Year with Heinz as one of the major advisors and judges.

    I was also lucky enough to meet him once, in a computer shop in London about 1980 when you had to go to the big city to find a computer shop :-)

    RIP Sir, you were a great influence.

    Indeed. He was an inspiration.

    I went looking on the Royal Institution website for his Christmas Lecture but I couldn't find it though I remember watching it at the time. That must have been forty years back.

    What I did find was this year's Bragg Lecture and it's tremendous, Professor Glazer manages to convey a lot very clearly. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v9bMEUr2II4

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.
    From the upper tier of the Leppings Lane End of the Hillsborough Stadium, I watched the events of that day unfold with horror.
    When the flowers want to oxygen and nutrition, or you’re a wedding or party planner, I will help you too much.

    The first Christmas Lectures I ever saw were presented by Eric Laithwaite, who passed away earlier this year.
    The 2nd was by Heinz Wolff.
