What a shame such lectures

What a shame such lectures cannot be viewed online - London unfortunately is not in the centre of UK.

Thanks for your feedback,

Thanks for your feedback, Tim. We're keen to share our lectures with as wide an audience as possible. Indeed, we've recently started publishing some of our free Lunchtime Lectures on the website.

We hope to be able to offer Celebrity Speaker lectures online at some stage in the future. However, this presents additional challenges which we are currently investigating.
