Ideas for the curious
The BBC has just launched a new experiment - short films for curious minds. It’s called BBC Ideas.
Ever wondered about the history of the @ sign? Or asked yourself if we’re ready for robots? And who doesn’t like a good ‘ism’ - from absurdism to transhumanism, don’t we all need a better understanding of some of the world's most important ideas?
BBC Ideas has playlists, like how to navigate modern life, where there are bite-sized films - of no more than four minutes long - on topics such as should we teach ethics to driverless cars? and Monk mode... and five other tips for work-life balance.
At Nesta we love curious minds. We believe that ideas are the key to human progress, prosperity and happiness. In a rapidly changing world, we need ideas - of all shapes and sizes - to tackle the big challenges we all face and empower people to shape the future.
This is why we are so excited about BBC Ideas. The BBC will be working with a number of organisations, including Nesta, on the content as it develops over the next year.
