John Watkinson

John Watkinson Christmas lecture

Watkinson is the author of technical television industry books such as The Art of Digital Video.

Leaving TV to one side, Watkinson discussed the seemingly apparent conflicts of religion and philosophy, and went on to demonstrate the importance of scientific rigour based on logically proven truths.

He warned: “Be permanently aware [that] you can mislead yourself. Science is a set of descriptions of how things are; science describes, it doesn’t explain.”
