' TTAI'PY is the nation that has no
JCL history ' is a view of the past that most countries in the modern world might envy but few can hold. Whother we like it or not, the past is always with us, colouring the present and fashioning the future. In that sense, 'all history is contemporary history,' and for that reason many of the talks in the winter programme will have an historical basis, dwelling on the men and movements of the past whose influence is still active. This talk by Mr. H. C. Wood , Principal of Wooilbrook Birmingham, a well-known historian, is in the nature of an introduction to the series, and it is being specially relayed to the Listening Groups' leaders now assembled in their annual Summer School at Oxford.

Mr. H. C. Wood

Part VII
