Secretary to the Cabinet Office - an institution devised by Lloyd George to cope with the exigencies of wartime government. It was a temporary appointment, and one which the ex-professor of economics didn't think would claim his long career, a career which led to the description of 'fifth most powerful man in Europe'. He kept a diary from the beginning, which charts his fascination with the process of government and also creates a portrait of an outsider who, despite attempts to leave the job after two years, was still an extraordinary civil servant - and Welshman - when the next world war began. Reader IOAN MEREDITH

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.
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.
