Can you be too old to have a brilliant idea?

Thanks to @digidifferences (aka Christine Brown) for alerting us to this radio 4 discussion of ‘Can you be too old to have a brilliant idea?’

It seems it is actually taking longer and later in careers for breakthrough discoveries, particularly in science.  Though I think this assumes that time spent in a career is also a factor, so for those of use who transitioned to academia a little later in life, we might still have a way to go!
