This discussion will be kept within rather strict limits. The plan is to make clear the difficulty of securing unanimity on this question among Christian believers, and directly opposed protagonists will not face one another from completely opposite standpoints. Both speakers will begin their discussion on the assumption that conflict of any kind is to be avoided by all possible means. Watcyn Williams agrees at once that pacifism is a fine thing, but he believes that occasions may arise when we must defend ourselves against unprovoked aggression. It is then his intention to place his dilemma clearly before us by asking Mr. Davies how complete pacifism can be maintained.

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.
