Programme in honour of the House of Commons.
Written and produced by Louis MacNeice
Exactly a year ago today the Debating Chamber of the House of Commons was destroyed by enemy action. Tonight's programme is to commemorate, not so much that tragic event, but the long history of free debate that preceded it, and which still continues in the contemporary British scene. Here is a dramatic reminder that the 'Mother of Parliaments' is the protector and protagonist of freedom.
Throughout the programme you will hear dramatised scenes from the long story of the English Parliament, and, naturally enough, some of the more noteworthy utterances of great Parliamentarians of history.
