4-The Trial of Dr. Lamson
The Old Bailey-March 1882
Dr. Lamson was charged with the murder of his nephew Percy Malcolm John, a seventeen-year-old crippled schoolboy, by administering aconitinea vegetable alkaloid about which little was known. The case is remarkable for several reasons, not least for the courage shown by the expert medical witnesses for the Crown during experiments carried out to establish the poison used.

Some thoughts occasioned by a visit to
Frank Lloyd Wright and Mies van der Rohe by Peter Smithson
Frank Lloyd Wright , the doyen of American architects who had virtually become a myth in his own lifetime, died earlier this year. Mies van der Rohe , another outstanding international architect, has recently received the R.I.B.A.'s gold medal for architecture from the Queen.
Peter Smithson , himself a practising architect, was in the United States shortly before Frank Lloyd Wright 's death. In this broadcast he creates a kind of double profile of the two men after having visited them both in their own surroundings within the space of twenty-four hours.
