The Left
Compiled and narrated by CONSTANTINE FITZGIBBON
The Thirties were a period of political alignment, in some cases more apparent than real. The division between Right and Left, particularly once the Spanish Civil War had started, seemed absolute. It was the signing of the Nazi-Soviet Pact in August of 1939 that showed how basically fallacious this cleft was. Meanwhile to the men and women of the thirties. and particularly to those of the Left, theirs seemed a very real grouping of forces. This programme examines those forces through the eyes of those who were alive at the time.

by DOM DAVID KNOWLES formerly Regius Professor of Modern History at Cambridge
Today Westminster Abbey begins a year of celebrations to mark the 900th anniversary of its re-founding by the Confessor. From the seventh century to the Reformation the Abbey was the home of a Benedictine community; and it still, in some respects, bears the stamp of its long Benedictine history. Professor Knowles talks about the genius of Benedictinism and its traditional association with ' the church of the nation at Westminster.
