The Royal Institution, London Annual Christmas Lectures to Young People

It is said that much of life is illusion; but this is an understatement. The pleasure of a conjuring trick and the strange disturbance of an optical illusion make this a provoking programme.

A review of the sciences.

"I rate John Baker as the greatest structural engineer alive today."
"As an engineer, his influence not only on structural design but on education has been tremendous."
Tonight's programme is a portrait of Professor Sir John Baker one of this country's most distinguished engineers (an engineer being, in his own words, a man who can do for 10/- what any fool can do for 11)
It traces his career from his early work on airships in the 1920s, on air-raid shelter design during the last war, to his present-day influence on young engineers in his department at Cambridge.
