Monday 5th Jan 2015, 02.15pm

This podcast is part of the The Big Questions series.

Edward Imrie and Dr Stephen Johnston talk about a surprising discovery – a collection of boxes, originally containing chocolates and soap, now full of tiny chemical vials thought to date back to the 1930s.

The chemicals belonged to Sir Robert Robinson, a respected Oxford chemist and Nobel laureate. By investigating the chemicals, it was hoped that clues could be found about Robinson’s research.
