Mr. J. L. HAMMOND :' British Leadership after Waterloo ' (continued)
THROUGHOUT the early and middle years
JL of the nineteenth century economic theory and practice in Great Britain was dominated by what is known as ' The Manchester School.' The term connotes a doctrine of world progress through the railway and the ' loom. The followers of the school pinned their faith to the idea of the world as a single economic unit, and of commerce as a new bond between nations rather than a cause of friction. In this talk Mr. J. L. Hammond. continuing his survey of this nation's rise to a place of dominating commercial and industrial power, discusses the Manchester School from all angles, contrasting its influence in colouring the mind of the nation with its practical limitations.

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.
