Presented by Roger Cook
(Repeated: Friday 10.5 am)
On 9 February 1933 - only days after Hitler came to power in Germany - the Oxford Union voted ' That this House will in no circumstances fight for its King and Country.'
* I hope you do penance every night and every morning for that ill-starred resolution.' wrote a correspondent to the Union President. ' If the Germans have to be knocked out a second time it will be partly your fault.'
Martin Ceadel talks to the men of 1933 - Max Beloff. David Graham. Frank Hardie. Lord Hailsham of St Marylebone and Lord Longford-and re-assesses the debate's importance in the sequence of events which led to war.
Producer CHRISTOPHER GRAHAM BBC Manchester
Mr Desai 's Indian Summer Part 1
Almost a year after Morarji Desai became Prime Minister of India at the age of 81, following his unexpected victory over Mrs Gandhi and the Congress Party in the country's General Election, both President Carter and Mr Callaghan have shown, by their recent visits, the importance the West attaches to the new Government. But how are India's rulers tackling the country's political, social and economic problems? What are the strengths and weaknesses of Mr Desai 's Janata Government? What does it see as India's position in the world?
