Sir John Boyd Orr , F.R.S., LL.D.
This series was designed as a forum of Scottish opinion, and all through the summer distinguished Scots have been contributing their views on a diversity of topics.
The speaker tonight,
Sir John Boyd Orr , is well known as a great authority on nutrition. The story of how he took up the cause of the ill-nourished people of the cities must surely be reckoned among one of the romances of science. A native of Ayrshire, he was educated at the University of Glasgow, and served in the war with distinction, winning the D.S.O. and the M.C. He has served on many agricultural councils, and in 1932 he became a Fellow of the Royal Society. He is now a director of the Rowett Research Institute at Aberdeen.

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.
