Annual Christmas Lectures to Young People by Professor Eric Laithwaite of Imperial College, London
5: The Time has come, the Walrus said ...
Physics, chemistry, mathematics, engineering, philosophy - Life, have all run together to form one composite subject which is the way our future lies. We have even dared to contemplate reversed time and by means of the gyroscope to ask whether the Universe has a ' top' and a 'bottom'. The White Queen says to Alice: It's a poor sort of memory that only works backwards.'

The world of MARCUS HELVIUS GEMINUS, a Roman who lived between 30 and 65AD with Robert Erskine 1: A Roman Lifetime
First of a series of 13 programmes depicting the lifestyle of a wealthy citizen in the Rome of the Caesars. It's surprising how familiar those ancient times are to us today.
From an inscription in the British Museum, it's possible to trace the career of GEMINUS, an upper-class Roman civil servant, born in 30 AD, his family, his households, his working life.

The Fate of the Country House Written and introduced by Roy Strong
The great country houses 'of England are finally on the rocks. Their struggle for survival in an alien century was cushioned during the 60s by a booming stock market. But now, with Wealth Tax threatening estate incomes, heating bills and building costs soaring, and the National Trust virtually powerless to help, hundreds of these uniquely English creations may well be coming to the end of the road. But do we care? Can we help?
ROY STRONG, director of the Victoria and Albert Museum , believes passionately that we can, and must, act now if European Architectural Heritage Year, 1975, is not to be the most disastrous year ever for our heritage.
In this film we look beyond the splendid facades to the bewildering problems of life in a stately home, and to the grim outlook for their future.
