Into the Woods: A Five Act Journey Into Story

John Yorke

Why do we tell stories? It’s a question that philosophers have asked down the centuries, and one that John Yorke is asking in his new book, Into the Woods.

As a leading television producer and former Head of Drama at the BBC, John Yorke is one of the UKs most influential storytellers. In this presentation, he takes us on a historical, philosophical, scientific and psychological journey to the heart of storytelling.
