' Bede ' : play about the father of English history, by V. A. Peam , with music specially composed .by Martin Shaw
The Northumbrian monk Bede (A.D. 673-735) is one of the most famous figures of the twilit period of British history between the end of the Roman Occupation and the establishment of a single English kingdom. He lived most of his life in the monastery at Jarrow, where he taught Latin, Greek, and Hebrew, and the singing of church music. His historical writings form the main authority for the period of the Anglo-Saxon conquests and the conversion to Christianity of the invaders.
Recorded talk by Lieut. John D. Drummond, R.N.V.R.
In this war, as in the last, the services rendered by the men of the little ships have proved of incalculable value. Their tasks are not always spectacular, though on their long voyages in northern waters-particularly on the run to Russia-they have had their share of peril and excitement.
Many of these little ships are converted deep-sea trawlers ; others are newly constructed; all are manned by wartime sailors who have been drawn from every walk of life.

No. 6—' What Now ? ' Written and produced by Louis MacNeice
Previous programmes in this series presented certain characters or events in history which were illuminated by particular concepts of freedom. This programme, the last of the series, is in the nature of a stock-taking. It looks at the past to weigh up earlier notions of freedom, and it looks at the present to decide what we mean when we use the same word today.
