News: A father’s influence and frisky fruit flies – We discuss new Imperial research that shows fathers who interact with their newborns have a positive impact on the child’s development, and a study that found out why female fruit flies get so aggressive after sex.

Revisit the Imperial Festival 2017 – Our team of reporters met researchers, performers, guests and even Charles Darwin this year, and explored everything from cake design to water filtration and from singing for wellbeing to a modern way to pickle food.
