A review of the sciences.
Introduced by Christopher Chataway.

Man of Science
H. G. Wells is best known as a writer of science romances and a man who, with remarkable accuracy, predicted future technological developments from the tank to space-shots. Behind the writer lay the shadow of the scientist he nearly became. Tonight's programme looks at the other side of this complex figure.

'Nature' Tomorrow
An interview with John Maddox, the new editor of one of the world's most influential scientific journals, Nature, in which he discusses his ideas for bringing up-to-date the magazine's coverage of scientific events.

A series of weekly programmes presenting music in the folk idiom from many parts of the world
This week: from Sweden William Clauson
with Los Guaramex

Tonight in Person: William Clauson
At 9.40 Entertaining you tonight is a red-haired, Swedish-born, American-educated singer who is accompanied by a Latin-American group called Los Guaramex. William Clauson went to school in California and there became familiar with Mexican popular music. He and his group now have a world-wide reputation for playing Latin-American music, but Clauson also sings authentic Australian songs, children's songs, and sea shanties. Los Guaramex comprise Pepito Villa (melody guitar) who comes from Mexico, Ronal Cerutti (rhythm guitar) from Argentina, and Sergio Cuevas (Paraguayan harp) who, not surprisingly, is from Paraguay.
