A series of nine talks
8: Particle Politics by ABDUS SALAM
Professor of Theoretical Physics. Imperial College, London, and Director of the International Centre for Theoretical Physics. Trieste
Physicists have discovered fifty or so new forms of matter in the last twenty years, yet they are not dismayed by this plethora-no more so than, say, by the variety of atoms encountered in the world. But the fifty do pose an outstanding conceptual Question-are they all equally composite or elementary-a nuclear democracy-or are they made up of three basic entities-nuclear aristocrats?
The Role of the Concept by Professor Grover Maxwell : June 25

1: The Strike Game
An illustrated account of the recent ' simulation exercise ' at the University of Strathclyde
The conflict situation was a socio-economic one, modelled on last year's seamen's strike. It is not a historical reconstruction of that event but a study of how such a situation develops, the various influences that arise, and the problems of communication between parties involved.
Introduced by RONALD MEEK Professor of Economics, University of Leicester
Produced by John Gray
The Validity of Simulation Exercises: Monday at 7.30 p.m.
