The Last of the Polymaths This week's programme in the series on Man and Science today
J. B. S. Haldane was one of the most controversial and eccentric figures that British science has produced this century. His experiments on himself are legendary. To Haldane the idea of two cultures was unthinkable. He was both a classical scholar and a brilliant mathematician who applied his skill to genetics. Born into an upper-class family he was educated at Eton and Oxford, but his life was marked by a series of battles with established authority. He died a naturalised Indian and a Communist sympathiser.
Tonight's programme is a portrait of this remarkable but unusual scientist and begins with Haldane delivering his own filmed obituary. Narrator CHRISTOPHER CHATAWAY

David Lloyd George , Welshman
My Welsh nature is my best inheritance. I glory in it! I am a Welshman before everything
Lloyd George grew up as a poor boy in a tiny village in North Wales. He became one of the towering figures of modern European history.
He attracted more devotion and more hatred than any other politician of this century. When he died in 1945, Churchill called him 'the greatest Welshman since Owen Glendower. ' And it is as a Welshman that he is remembered in this programme.
To the rest of Britain the Prime Minister and war leader of over 50 years ago may only be a history-book character, but in Wales David Lloyd George is a living legend and there are men and women who can still bring alive the unique personality of the man who was known to friend and foe as the Welsh Wizard. Narrated by HENLEY THOMAS
