Don’t miss: IVF history, a Jurassic world game and number talk | Artificial Intelligence



A new exhibition at London’s Science Museum, opening on 5 July, marks the 40th birthday of in vitro fertilisation. IVF: 6 Million Babies Later explores the story, from early opposition and the challenges the pioneers had to deal with right up to today’s reproductive science.


Tune in to the BBC World Service for The Forum (schedules online). Anthropologist and linguist Caleb Everett joins presenter Bridget Kendall to explore how numbers and counting shaped the world. Alongside them are historian Tomoko Kitagawa and mathematician Ian Stewart.



Life always finds a way – but try not to let it. Jurassic World Evolution for the PS4 promises exciting and novel gameplay, while staying true to its source material. Players bioengineer smart dinosaurs, give them unique behaviours, traits and appearances, then try to contain and profit from them. What could possibly go wrong?


Tune in to BBC4 at 9 pm BST on 5 July for the first part of The NHS: A people’s history. Look out for the still-roadworthy Invacar (pictured above), a vehicle adapted for disabled drivers that the UK’s National Health Service distributed for free in the 1960s.
