Talk by Robert McKenzie
The study of British politics, Mr. McKenzie suggests, has been too little concerned with what happens outside Parliament, so that a whole area of political activity is left virtually unexplored. The speaker, who is a Lecturer at rhe London School of Economics, points to the value in this connection of such empirical studies as The Party System in Great Britain by Ivor Bulmer-Thomas and David Butler 's The Electoral System in Great Britain, both published recently. followed by an interlude at 7.45

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
