1: The Council of Trent 1545-1563
Ϯ by DOUGLAS WOODRUFF, C.B.E.

An experiment in autobiography in which KENNETH GRIFFITH talks about his life and career
I was the shyest person In terms of going up on a stage, in front of people. Other children were quits happy to sing songs, and do dances, and participate in little plays and things, but this I remember was out of the question. The very threat of it sent me into hysterics.'
Produced for the RothweU Group by BENNETT MAXWELL
