IOT: Baconian Science

A great episode of the In Our Time radio programme on Radio 4 in the UK (available as a PodCast or HERE).

Bacon was a Jacobean lawyer and politician turned advocate for science - famously writing a book Novum Organum which described how to use data collection, observation and experiment to do science.

Good material on Wikipedia about Bacon and in Oxford.
