  • Fri, December 15, 2017
  • 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
  • Royal College of Physicians, Regent’s Park, NW1 4LE

Meet the team behind BBC TV's 'Quacks' over mince pies and mulled wine to discover how they brought the gruesome realities of Victorian medicine to the screen.
From dead moles to modesty dolls, ether and mesmerism, ‘Quacks’ is a romp through 19th century London’s medical world. Created by James Woods (also writer of Rev), produced by Imogen Cooper (maker of Horrible Histories) and with history consulting by Richard Barnett (author of the The Sick Rose).
Join us to come face to face with the show's creators, ask the panel your questions about making history into television and hear how the Royal College of Physician’s own archives and remarkable collections inspired the programme
The evening will be presented by Kristin Hussey, medical historian and curator of the Royal College of Physicians.
Spaces for this event are limited, book now to secure your place.
