A lecture she delivered in 1980 led to a radio talk show called Sexually Speaking. The show was a hit and Westheimer became a nationally recognised authority on sexual matters. Dr Ruth has written numerous books and still lives in New York City.

Dr Ruth's work for Planned Parenthood led herto study human sexuality under Dr. Helen Singer Kaplan at New York Hospital-Cornell University Medical Center, where she became Adjunct Associate Professor.  She is currently an Adjunct Professor at New York University and a fellow of both Calhoun College at Yale and Butler College at Princeton, as well as a fellow of the New York Academy of Medicine.  She has her own private practice in New York and lectures worldwide.

Giancarlo Impiglia
Giancarlo Impiglia - Artist & Art Historian

Giancarlo Impiglia is an artist and art historian whose name is renowned in the world of art. He studied at the Art Lyceum and the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome. He also studied at the Italian Center of Cinematography of Rome, participating in several movies as cameraman and set designer.

Giancarlo's American art career was launched in 1974 with an important commission for the Great American Insurance Building: a 60 foot mural for the lobby of 99 John Street in New York City. This led to a succession of commissions in Manhattan and in many other American cities. In 1994 he was commissioned by Cunard to create three original large murals for the decor of the Lido on QE2. He also decorated the Lido with a series of 20 original Serigraphs.

In 2003 Giancarlo Impiglia was commissioned again by Cunard to create four original paintings for Queen Mary 2, on the theme of entertainment. The paintings now grace the walls on staircase B on decks 2 and 3, opposite the Royal Court Theatre. Mr. Impiglia also created the Portrait of Queen Victoria as a Young Woman, installed in the Queen’s Room of the new ocean liner Queen Victoria.

His paintings are featured in the permanent collection of The Museum of the City of New York, The Zimmerly Museum at Rutgers University, NJ, The Kentucky Derby Museum, The Sangre de Cristo Museum of Pueblo, Colorado, The Italian American Museum in New York, The Absolut Collection, Sweden, The Pfizer Collection, New York, the Cunard Art Collection, and Elton John's private collection, just to mention a few.

Michael Kushner
Michael Kushner - Bletchley Park & Code Breaking

Michael Kushner is a guide and lecturer at Bletchley Park, the British government's former ultra top secret code breaking establishment, also known as War Station X. Before 1980 very few people knew of Bletchley Park's existence or how significant it was during World War II.

Bletchley Park is where the German secret cipher machine Enigma was cracked. Some of the top British brains were employed to break this top secret code, shortening the war by at least two years, and also saving countless lives. Michael tells the fascinating story of  how we invented Colussus - the world's first computer - in order to break into the German U-boat, Luftwaffe, and army codes, intercepting Adolf Hitler's messages to his generals. The people who worked at Bletchley Park were sworn to secrecy for life, but finally their story can be told.

His military career included a variety of assignments including Infantry combat tours in Vietnam and the DMZ in Korea and a tour with the President's Honor Guard, as well as a number of positions on the business side of the Army.

Steve was born in Albany, Oregon in an Army family. He was a Distinguished Military Graduate from Texas A&M in 1965 with a BBA and from George Washington University in 1975 with an MBA in Government Procurement and Contracting.
