TALKS

TALKS

Many organisations normally have programmes of talks relevant to their special interests. Live talks have had to be suspended during the Covid-19 lock-down. However, some have been given through platforms such as Zoom; and some of those were recorded, so that they could be watched again by a further audience. We list those we know of that are currently available.
