Marshal of the Royal Air Force Lord Tedder and Lady Tedder
Introduced by Richard Dimbleby.
A BBC outside broadcast from Lord Tedder's home near Banstead in Surrey.

Lord Tedder - 'At Home'
Marshal of the Royal Air Force, Lord Tedder, who will be 'At Home' to viewers tonight, is most widely known for his record during the last war. It was he who contributed so much to the development of Army-Air Force cooperation in the Western Desert, and he was, of course, Deputy Supreme Allied Commander during the campaign which followed the Normandy landings. But Lord Tedder's interests are not confined to military matters. As Chancellor of Cambridge University and
Chairman of one of the largest motor manufacturing companies, he has been able to form strong views on industrial and human problems in this country.
It is not, however, entirely about Lord Tedder's public activities that Richard Dimbleby will be interviewing him tonight, for Lord and Lady Tedder live in an old farmhouse, whose records date back to the fifteenth century, and which is a delightfully quiet retreat, a little more than fourteen miles from the centre of London.
