A documentary on the Ruhr Regional Planning Authority in West Germany by Richard Hooper using material collected specially in Essen. The Regional Authority was founded in 1920 by the (equivalent of) county boroughs and county councils in the Ruhr. The significance for us in the United Kingdom Is that the Ruhr Authority has executive powers over roads, railways, and green spaces of regional importance. The problems of the Ruhr are comparable to those of our own underdeveloped regions: a poor environment, left over from the Industrial Revolution; the decline of coal and the need to attract growth industries; loss in population.

† by PAUL THOMPSON
Lecturer in Social History at the University of Essex
Mr. Thompson disputes the view expressed by Sigfried Gideon. J. M. Richards and others, that the mid-Victorian ancestor of the modern architect was the unsophisticated engineer, rather than the conscious designer of ' architects' architecture.'
A talk occasioned by the exhibition 'Sir Joseph Paxton , 1803-1865.' organised by the Arts Council in association with the Victoria Society

2: Lincoln and the American Commitment tby J.R.POLE,
Fellow of Churchill College and Reader in American History and Government at the University of Cambridge
Lincoln's monumental head looks at us with the innovating face of American history. American democracy was to him an adventure of proving the truths proclaimed in the Declaration of Independence. The American Revolution and Constitution had given an entirely new credibility to the eighteenth century belief in man's power to shape his history rationally. By the 1850s that commitment to rationality was being fundamentally challenged. Lincoln's genius grasped where and how the situation must be laid hold of.
