Died 7 February 1779
The 18th century, long regarded as a dark age of British music, is at last beginning to be seen in a different light, and the passing of the Handelian eclipse is now revealing the enduring vitality of native composers. On the bicentenary of Boyce's death, Harry Diack John -stone talks about the life and work of this Georgian master, whose significance is not less than that of many more celebrated figures.

Last year the Harvard University biologist Edward 0. Wilson published yet another controversial book, On Human Nature, in which he asserted that the methods used in the study of social animals could be applied with equal validity to man and that therefore it should be possible to account for the nature of man in purely biological terms.
Professor Wilson discusses his ideas with Anthony Quinton , President of Trinity College. Oxford and Gunther Stent , Professor of Molecular Biology at the University of California at Berkeley.
