The Two-Edged Sword
The last of six talks by Professor Laurence Martin, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, on armed force in the modern world.
Who's Moving the Goal Post?
'Conditioned by its ideals to feel guilty about the use of force, democratic opinion is addicted to crusades, if not against some foreign force, then against armed force itself. We badly need a more balanced approach, for only thus can we hope for the sustained and coherent policies an age of deterrents demands.
Such an approach begins from a vigorous scrutiny of both the problem and the remedies proposed.'
This lecture will appear in THE LISTENER dated 17 December
(Issues raised in The Reith Lectures 1981 will be discussed in a special programme on 6 Jan 1982)

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.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
