by BILL NAUGHTON with Bill Owen
After the first broadcast of Alfie Elkins earlier this month, some of the critics wrote: This was proper radio..... In one of the best bits of acting I have ever heard. Bill Owen juts the man through the words, stabbing the Cockney sentences through endless cigarette butts (Sunday Telegraph). This is, as the title makes plain, a ' little life,' but it was a brilliant radio portrait (Glasgow Herald).

The Europeans in Algeria
A discussion
Can the 1,000,000 French-speaking Europeans be given, and will they accept, effective guarantees under which they could live in an independent Algeria? Some of the difficulties involved in attempts to answer those questions are discussed in this conversation between two journalists who have spent much time in Algeria, HENRI de TURENNE of France-Soir and PETER RALEIGH of the BBC.
Their discussion is introduced by JAMES JOLL , Fellow of St. Antony's College, Oxford, who places the problem in its historical perspective.
