by the Rt. Hon. Sir Oliver Franks ,
2-A Fellowship of Free Nations In his second lecture Sir Oliver Franks examines the part Britain should play in the new Commonwealth. It is very important, he says, that we see the Commonwealth and our position and relationships within it as they are, and do not allow memories and habit to blur our perception. The independence of the members of the Commonwealth is no merely negative freedom. How can Britain sustain her leadership as one of a group of equal sovereign nations?

Lecturer in Social Anthropology in the University of Oxford
The speaker examines the causes and nature of the process usually described as ' detribalisation' in Africa and Oceania. He suggests that it may mean so many things, including changes of a kind common in our own society, that the concept should be used only with care and qualification.

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.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
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.
