Orations for, and responses by, Biddy Baxter and Nigel Henbest.

At last week’s Graduation Ceremonies we gave Honorary Degrees to Blue Peter producer Biddy Baxter (who was born in Leicester) and science writer/astronomer Nigel Henbest (who took his BSc here).

We now have online videos for each of our Honorary Graduates; the first half of each 12-minute clip is an oration by a senior academic describing the person’s work, then the Honorary Graduate gives a speech in response.

For videos of previous Honorary Graduates, including Desmond Tutu, Terry Wogan and Patrick Moore, visit our YouTube Channel.
