Beau Lotto appears on BBC2's Horizon

In this programme, broadcast on BBC2 on 18th October 2010, Horizon investigates sensory perception, illusions and the interplay of our different senses. Beau Lotto, as one of the programme's contributors, explains the reasons why the way we perceive the world around us is based primarily on context and history rather than simply the light that shines onto the eye.

Beau's contribution includes doing a ‘street performance' in London's Covent Garden, where he shows the public that tricks of illusion are, in fact, no different from our every-day perceptions of the world.
