5. FRACTURE: STORIES OF HOW GREAT LIVES TAKE ROOT IN TRAUMA

Matthew Parris, presenter of Great Lives on BBC Radio 4, will explore the surprising connection between trauma and greatness through vivid case histories from Ada Lovelace and Vladimir Lenin to Carl Jung and Coco Chanel. All geniuses who changed the world in ways that still influence our lives today. And all men and women who experienced, in childhood, trauma so severe that it should have broken them completely. In this compelling talk it will become clear that we must rethink the origins of success, as well as the legacy of trauma.
