Professor ElLEEN POWER (Professor of Economic
History in the University of London): The Middle Ages-I, Political Life and Thought '
The civilized world is groping for a satisfactory conception of unity. It is the glory and the paradox of the Middle Ages that they achieved the conception, but failed to maintain it in practice. The Holy Roman Empire, which united mediaeval society under the complementary rule of the Pope and the Emperor, did immense service to the modern world in preserving the memory of the Roman Empire and the unity of the Christian Church, while assimilating into the European scheme the northern barbarians who had overrun the Mediterranean world. Europe retained the titular unity until the time of Napoleon, when its framework finally collapsed, being, in Voltaire's phrase, no longer ' Holy, nor Roman, nor an Empire.' Today urgent efforts arc being made to resurrect the mediæval ideal in a political form suited to modern needs.
The present generation knows the London
Pavilion as the home, since 1918, of the Cochran Revues, notably Phi-Phi, On With, the Dance, Blackbirds, and, with Noel Coward , This Year of Grace. Many of the ' hits' of recent years were borri in this island-site theatre at ' the centre of the world.' and Miss Jessie Matthews will recall in to-night's broadcast many of the songs she sang in the original productions of One Damn Thing After Another, This Year of Grace, and Wake Up and Dream. While that famous comedian, Nelson Keys , recalls memories of Buzz Buzz, in which he appeared at the ' Pav ' in 1920.
