THE LAST OF THE POLYMATHS
J. B. S. Haldane was one of the most controversial figures that British science has produced during this century. He was born in an upper-class Scottish family and educated at Eton and Oxford; he died in India, a naturalised Indian and a communist sympathiser. He was a brilliant mathematician who applied his skill to genetics; but he was also a classical scholar who put his original mind to a huge range of subjects. For him the idea of two cultures was unthinkable.
Haldane's behaviour is legendary, and not only in scientific circles. He was involved in daring exploits in the first world war, performed dangerous scientific experiments on himself (his family motto was ' Suffer '), and throughout his life maintained a running battle with established authority.
Tonight's programme is a portrait of this remarkable but unusual scientist seen through the eyes of his friends and critics.

Dr. Jacob Bronowski presents a dramatised essay on the man and his work
AS A MAN IS-SO HE SEES
For thirty-five years of his life Blake lived under the iron heel of war and three revolutions-in France, in America, and in the growing industry of Britain. He was a rebel against political and religious dogma, a mystic who dined with Isaiah, a poet of the stature of Milton. As an artist, he considered himself in the company of Michelangelo and Raphael -a presumption, maybe, but all his life he struggled to convey extraordinary visions: he saw the plight of twentieth-century man crushed by the Machine of State. Yet he lived with the hope. that man's imagination would enable him- to rise free. He believed Jerusalem could be built among the satanic mills.
Like most men ahead of their time he was deemed mad. Only today can we see him as a prophet whose work is as relevant to our time as that of any modem thinker.
