Frankenstein is still relevant today as it was 200 years ago, and Shelley's creature lives on, as an embodiment of society's anxieties about where science is taking us.
Join Philip Ball and a panel of experts as they discuss the context in which the book was written and how the tale has become a popular myth with a life of its own, independent of Shelley's original text.
