Two talks about the future by SIR GEOFFREY VICKERS , v.C.
Author of The Art of Judgment
1: The Political Challenge
The present rate of world-wide technological advance is increasing the mutual demands and expectations of people and societies who are growing more numerous, more crowded, more mutually dependent—but also more diverse and more mutually Intolerant. We shall have to learn how to live in a much denser political medium.

2: 1918-1945
The Years of Discovery
Bartok devoted as much time and energy to folk music as to composition. Indeed, shortly tjefore his death, he described his work in the field of folk song as ' the finest part of my life.' This second and last programme, based partly on recent researches in the Bartok Archive in Budapest, considers how Bartok established himself as a leading folklore scientist, and why he considered it so important to himself as a composer and a man. produced by DOUGLAS CLEVERDON
