Eight programmes on the background of the Roman world
8: Roman Education and Oratory by L. P. WILKINSON
Fellow of King's College, Cambridge
Roman education was by tradition based on apprenticeship, but in the later Republic primary and secondary schools spread, modelled on those of contemporary Greece. Educated Romans were bilingual. and higher education was mainly Greek, with rhetoric as the staple subject. But Latin found a champion in Cicero, and under the Empire Latin rhetorical schools overshadowed everything.
With readings by Denis GOACHER
Produced by Adrian Johnson
Second broadcast
A reading list can be obtained by sending a stamped, addressed foolscap envelope to The Romans, Further Education Department [address removed]

Fourteen illustrated talks by ROGER FISKE
14: The British Orchestra Today
It is impossible these days for an orchestra to pay its own way unless it plays nothing but the most popular music. Modern music, which requires more rehearsal, is highly uneconomic and the repertoire has tended to consolidate with music from the past rather than move with the times. For the composer, electronic music is one way out of the economic problem: it also enables him to be both creator and interpreter.
