An Introductory Talk
The Right Honble. GEORGE LANSBURY,
(From Manchester)
The object of this series is to provide talks to listeners in Unemployed Clubs, of which there are nearly 2,500 in the country. Many of them are equipped with wireless sets and have eager listeners.
The series will consist of three talks a week-on Monday and Tuesday mornings, and Friday afternoons. Those on Monday will deal with industrial subjects that have a special interest to the unemployed, such as conditions of unemployment in other countries, how affairs abroad affect our own trade, the question of machinery and labour, and so forth.
Tuesday talks will deal more specifically with club activities, while on Friday afternoons John Hilton will give a weekly commentary on current events and affairs in general. These talks are especially for Unemployed Clubs and the B.B.C. hopes that their members will not hesitate to write in with suggestions and criticisms.
Mr. George Lansbury , who is a respected figure in public life, will open the series this morning.

It is the aim of this Discussion Group series to examine a number of questions arising out of the complexities of the economic position in the world today. The purport of the series can be summed up in the question : In what does the ' economic problem ' consist ?
Mr. Graham Hutton (Assistant Editor of the Economist) will act as ' 'Editor' throughout. He will introduce the series this evening, and will also come to the microphone at the end of each single talk by the various experts and give a short summary of the important points that have been raised. In this way Mr. Hutton will link up each talk with the preceding and succeeding ones, and to the general theme of the series.
