The British Council was first established as a voluntary organisation in November 1934. Its aim, to quote the words of the Royal Charter of 1940, is to promote ' a wider knowledge of Our United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and other countries for the purpose of benefiting the British Commonwealth of Nations ...' In this broadcast a number of people with first-hand knowledge of the Council's work express their views of its achievement.
