Blake's Donation

Two days ago Quentin Blake unveiled his Cambridge 800; An Informal Panorama in Addenbrooke's Hospital, a 70-foot-long mural he donated to the hospital to celebrate the 800th anniversary of Cambridge University. It begins with this cartoon showing Fleeing Scholars seeking a site for a new university in 1209 (there were riots in Oxford at the time). BBC News has posted an audio slideshow in which Quentin Blake talks us through his designs and the Cambridge University alumni he depicts (title link).
