ABOUT

The BBC Ideas platform serves up thought-provoking content targeted to an audience wary of fake news / click-bait and eager for new perspectives
Our playlist “Thinkers from the past on our world today” comprises six beautifully crafted animated films that communicate complex ideas in a short time:
Initially we created "Foucault's warning on fake news" and then in 2019 we were commissioned to make 5 further films;
- What would Freud make of the selfie?
- Greek poet Sappho’s view of today’s attitudes towards sexuality?
- If Plato were alive today, what would he think of the modern referendum?
- How Simone de Beauvoir could have reacted to the #MeToo
- What would Florence Nightingale make of big data?

The playlist has had 221.8K views on BBC ideas as of September 2020.
