What's the talk about?

Brian Deer is a multi-award-winning investigative reporter best known for inquiries into the drug industry, medicine and social issues for the Sunday Times.

This talk looks at one particular investigation, detailed in his book 'The Doctor Who Fooled the World'. The investigation was spread over more than 15 years and involved battles against medical secrecy, insider cover-ups, smear campaigns and gagging lawsuits to uncover rigged research and a scientific scandal of our time.

At the heart of this dark narrative was the rise of the so-called father of the anti-vaccine movement: Andrew Wakefield.
