Director. Jim FRANKLIN
Producer, MICHAEL MILLS
Tom Sloan , BBC-tv's Head of Light Entertainment, has said of Billy Cotton ... ' I never knew a man who realised so much that life was for living. Into his career he packed enough to satisfy ten men ... After the first war he started his own band-and worked his way to the top the hard way.
' He had a go at bus conducting, played football for Wimbledon and Brentford. He did a bit of boxing ... he had his own plane ... he became one of the great personalities of Brooklands ... he was indeed top of the bill in everything he did.'

In this programme
Robin Day introduces
LORD BEECHING to members of the student body and teaching staff in the Students Union Building,
UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHAMPTON
Directed by RAY COLLEY
Produced by MARGARET DOUGLAS
Is the existing machinery of government in Britain adequate to deal with the problems of a complex modern state? How can we best combine efficiency in man. aging our affairs with democratic control? And have we got democratic control anyway? Recently the Conservative Shadow Home Secretary said that Parliament had become ' virtually an elective dictatorship and public regard for politicians of all parties seems very low.
Lord Beeching, who is discussing these questions tonight, feels strongly that the only way to save democracy is to reform government so that our affairs can be run more efficiently. As Dr. Beeching, of course, he became a national figure when he was seconded from industry to halt the vast financial losses of the railways.
