A series of eight talks 8: Elective Selection by Professor T.M. SONNEBORM University of Indiana
The possibilities suggested by the application of genetics to man seem, at the moment, to be almost frightening. Professor Sonneborn suggests that this is simply due to their novelty. He maintains that we will accept them as and when they become freely available just as we have come to accept contraception and therapeutic abortion as part of our social behaviour.
Recorded at Indiana University

Giles Playfair enquires into the economics of the commercial theatre and talks to
Emile Littler , Hugh Beaumont Michael Denison , Daniel Massey Peter Bridge , and Peter Donald Currently half the theatres in London are playing to good houses but claim they are only making small profits because costs are so high. The other theatres are not even attracting large enough audiences to cover their costs. Outside London the commercial theatre is in its death throes; the leading commercial management intends to dispose of all Its theatres In the next three years. In these circumstances how long can the commercial theatre survive even in London? Is the quality of commercial management adequate in the face of growing competition from the subsidised theatre as well as television and films?
