Isambard Kingdom Brunel is widely regarded as the greatest engineer ever to have worked in Britain – and some would say the greatest in the world. But less is known about his father, Marc Brunel?

In this talk, Anthony Burton reflects on the often overlooked achievements of Marc Brunel, and the influence he had on his more famous son.

What did he give him beyond his rather eccentric first name? Would Ismabard’s achievements been possible without the influence of his father?
