Press/Media: Research

Description

I was interviewed by Jolyon Jenkins for a BBC Radio 4 documentary about why our children are hooked on the computer game Minecraft. The programme aimed to explore whether its alternate universe stimulated creativity, or made them disengage from planet Earth? My interview topped and tailed the programme.
