What's the talk about?

 Given the bewildering variety of life on Earth – all stemming from one self-replicating molecule – can we really predict what life on other worlds is like? Maybe not. But we can imagine what it isn’t like.

Stevyn Colgan has been involved with aliens for three decades. He’s held Jabba the Hutt’s face, helped sculpt creatures for Bruce Willis to shoot at and had a script accepted for 'Doctor Who' in the 1980s. In this entertaining talk you’ll hear about feuding gangs of scientists, the unlikelihood that any visiting aliens will be humanoid, film directors with less imagination than children, fractal nose worms and the perils of concrete poo.

You’ll also come to realise that if we really are intelligently designed, the designer needs their head examined.

‘I've found a new genius. Amazing speaker, fantastic stories’ – Ayd Instone, Eldamar Ltd

‘A brilliant talk. So much common sense’ – Simon Raymonde, Bella Union and ex-Cocteau Twins

(Stevyn would like to make it clear that he has never been abducted, nor had anything or anywhere probed.)
