A programme in which questions are first discussed by the panel:
Megan Lloyd George and Wyn Griffith and then by the audience.
Chairman, Hywel Davies
From the Temple of Peace, Cardiff.
This popular Welsh discussion programme, which tonight makes its television debut, takes rather a different form from those to which viewers are accustomed. Most of these have a panel of four speakers who discuss questions put by members of the audience direct. Voice of the People has only two members of the panel, one of whom opens the discussion. Members of the audience take up the topic and continue the discussion until the chairman thinks it is time to bring it to a close and to propose a new subject.
The topics are chosen from questions sent in advance by members of the audience and have ranged, during the programme's journeyings in sound through Wales, from "Is it right for a Christian to gamble?" to "Should men brighten their dress?"
Programme presented by:
The eighteenth of twenty-six films produced by the National Broadcasting Company of America and the U.S. Navy, with the assistance of the Admiralty, and using film from both allied and enemy sources.
Film introduced by Michael Lewis, Professor of History at the Royal Naval College, Greenwich.
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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
