The Incidental Tourist
Join Nobel Prize winner Peter Doherty on his extraordinary adventures around the globe.

Scientists travel the world speaking, researching, advising. Their focus is usually firmly trained on their colleagues, on data and the problems at hand. But what happens when they lift their gaze to their surroundings, investigate the local history and culture, and ask- 'What the hell am I doing here?'
The Incidental Touristis about these new connections between people and places.
