Eight programmes for teachers and parents on the changing scene in secondary schools
Introduced by Dr. F. Hilliard
'Men say that the young of all creatures cannot be quiet in their bodies or in their voices, they are always wanting to move and cry out: some leaping and shipping, others uttering all sorts of cries... Shall we begin then with the acknowledgment that education is first given through Apollo and the Muses?'
These observations were made by Plato some 2,300 years ago. Nowhere would they receive greater support than among the present teachers of creative drama in schools.
A series of eight broadcasts
Introduced by DR. ANNE Ross
7: The Literatures of the Celtic World
The oral tradition was deliberately fostered in the Celtic societies. When this ancient tradition was finally committed to writing under the patronage of the Church, a whole way of life was preserved. The vernacular literatures of the British Isles are the oldest in Furope, apart from the Greek and Roman writings. They contain heroic legends, mythological traditions. stories of saints and accounts of the voyages and adventures of pagans and Christians alike. Poetic expression in the form of sung or performed verse played a leading role in early Celtic societies, and bards were often attached to noble houses to eulogise the chieftains and their families.

5: The Retreat to Commitment
1 A conversation between
Eean of St. John's College, Cambridge and WILLIAM WARREN BARTLEY Research Fellow of Gonville and Caius College
The Retreat to Commitment is the title of a book by the American philosopher, W. W. Bartley , published a few years ago. In it Mr. Bartley offers a radical criticism of the traditional approach to the problem of rationality and justification; and he advances a solution of his own. Renford Bambrough asks him to explain and defend it.

A radio collage based on material written and assembled by Daevid Allen
In this free-flowing treatment of poems, conversation, snatches of music and electronic sounds, Mr. Allen has constructed a radiophonic work in the borderland between literature and music. It takes its place alongside other recent experimental programmes, including Crook and Souster's Seasons through the Day of a Town by the Sea and Rosemary Tonk's Sono-Montage, but ultimately it should perhaps be listened to more in the spirit of a piece of music, such as John Cage's Fontana Mix.
Introduced by George Macbeth followed by an interlude at 10.55
