Talking backwards

Eric Laithwaite investigates how one could speak backwards.

If you could meet your reflection in the mirror, what would they be like? Would you be able to communicate with them? In this video Eric Laithwaite investigates how one can speak backwards, in case they ever came across their mirrored double.

Eric Laithwaite gave the 1966 CHRISTMAS LECTURES "The engineer in wonderland" and the 1974 CHRISTMAS LECTURES "The engineer through the looking glass". This clip is from his fourth 1974 lecture "The Jabberwock".
