A series of six programmes
3: The 1930s: the collapse of collective security by DR. ROGER MORGAN of the University of Sussex
Several explanations have been given of the failure of the League of Nations to make collective security work. Does the experience of the 1930s suggest that collective security as conceived by the makers of the League is completely Utopian and, if not, what are the conditions under which it might succeed?
Produced by Adrian Johnson

A Runaway World? by Edmund Leach Provost of King's College, Cambridge and University Reader in Social Anthropology
3: Ourselves and Others
Our feeling that we stand opposed to nature and also to the products of our own technology is part of a more fundamental antagonism-the split which separates ' us ' from the ' others.' Whether the ' others ' be the mysterious ' they' of government, or ' bloody foreigners.' or ' these awful youngsters,' or the despised old, they are symptoms of a fragmented way of living which generates loneliness. anxiety, and violence.

Recollections of Robert Farquharson by DAME SYBIL THORNDIKE
SIR LEWIS CASSON
SIR JOHN GIELGUD
SIR DONALD WOLFIT
CARLETON HOBBS and DAVID PEEL
Produced by DOUGLAS CLEVERDON
Robert Farquharson , who died last year at an age unknown to his friends, played the part of Herod in the first English production of Oscar Wilde's Salome in 1905. Max Beerbohm found his performance especially laudable 'in that he never let his minute expression of Herod's self in all its hideousness interfere with his musical delivery of the elaborate cadences.'
His wit, usually deflating, sometimes venomous, but always apposite, was legendary; with it he combined considerable learning and unexpected kindness to old ladies.
