A study of a social problem by C. R. Hewitt
The Wolfenden Committee, whose report is expected shortly, was set up by the Home Secretary in 1954 ' to consider (a) the law and practice relating to homosexual offences and the treatment of persons convicted of such offences by the courts; and (b) the law and practice relating to offences against the criminal law in connection with prostitution and solicitation for immoral purposes; and to report what changes, if any, are in their opinion desirable.'
This programme relates to the first matter under consideration by the Committee. Mr. Hewitt presents the opinions of authorities who have been concerned with the homosexual as a patient and, in the present situation, as a lawbreaker.
Those taking part include :
Kenneth Walker surgeon and sexologist
Claud Mullins former Metropolitan Magistrate a psychiatrist and a prison medical officer
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
