Speaker information

Professor Joe Cain, Head of Department, UCL Science and Technology Studies

Witness a tale of good vs. evil (all in one individual) and self-experimentation in this classic sci-fi horror film. Dr Jekyll creates a potion which transforms him into an evil alter ego, Mr Hyde, allowing him to carry out wicked acts free of conscience. By doing so, Jekyll hopes to prove his theory that through the separation of the good and evil sides in man, one can become liberated. Will he maintain control, and will his good side hold out? Find out in this iconic blockbuster. Not suitable for children.

Historian of Biology and film-buff Professor Joe Cain (UCL Science and Technology Studies) will introduce the film. The film is followed by a free drinks reception in a private view of the Museum. This event is free and there is no need to book.
