Colin Blakemore, professor of neuroscience and philosophy and Honorary Fellow of the Society of Biology, has been shortlisted as a nominee for the BBC One Show's People's Portrait award.
Professor Blakemore is one of 12 public figures nominated from the world of science, sport, public service and entertainment, who have been shortlisted for commemoration by the National Portrait Gallery, standing alongside Simon Weston, Barbara Windsor and Simon Baron-Cohen.
This week the One Show will feature short films on the nominated individuals, and the public will be asked to cast their votes later in the week (from the 13th September). Professor Blakemore's film will be shown at 19:00 on 9th September, along with details on how to vote. Once chosen, the winner will sit for a portrait to be displayed as part of the National Portrait Gallery's Collection.
