A Quite Interesting Approach to Education

Can you walk on water? Then you have done no better than a straw.

Conquer your Heart, and then you may become someone.

A Quite Interesting Approach to Education

John Lloyd is the television producer and presenter of some of the most renowned UK comedies in recent decades, including Blackadder and The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. In 2002, he made the pilot of “QI” (an acronym for “Quite Interesting”), a popular show which is now in its 18th series on the BBC. “When I started QI, only about five per cent of people that I talked to understood what it was really getting at. They said: “Oh, it’s a game”, but I would say: “No, it’s a principle”. The principle at the core of QI is that literally everything in the universe without exception is interesting — if looked at long enough or closely enough or from the right angle. This is a philosophy that really works. Over and over again we have proved that something that looks dull is not dull. It works for anything — any country, any fruit, any town, any house, any person.” He shares more in this interview. { read more }
