GLAD TO HEAR IT

Meet Your Guide. Barry’s a microbiologist. a physician and an art historian. This interview ranges across his extraordinary life and career, from childhood in rural Ireland to the frontline in the battle against Coronavirus.

Royal Medicine – Monarchs, Matrons & Maladies

Now entertain conjecture of a time. Of times. And of people. Special people. Kings and Queens and Princes and Princesses. Of their lives. Their maladies. Their deaths.

So, yes, exactly what it says on the tin. The life and death of royalty. Those matters are always interesting, often fascinating. Including their medical history – ranging from their coming to their going. Their living, their dying, their excesses, their maladies, their treatment, their cadres of medical attendants, their post-mortems, the works. Fascinating.

And make no mistake, even more so because we’re shown these places and that time and those events – guided through that history – by a doctor.

ROYAL MEDICINE – THE PRACTICALS

Royal Medicine takes place at 2.30 pm on Saturday, May 22.  Meet Doctor Barry outside the Westminster Abbey/Broadway exit of St. James’s Park Tube.
