2-The Transition to Self-Government
This is the second of two talks by Sir Ivor Jennings on what he calls ' the greatest political experiment of all time.' The two talks together form an introduction to a series of lectures which he will broadcast later this year on constitution-building in the nations of the British Commonwealth.
This concert is given before an invited audience: the programme has been arranged in collaboration with the Music Section of the Institute of Contemporary Arts.
Brian Wormald, Fellow of Peterhouse Cambridge, talks about "The Reformation in England" by Philip Hughes.
The author of this three-volume study quotes with approval the remark of a predecessor in Roman Catholic historiography, John Lingard, that the historian should view the events which pass before his eyes with the calmness of an unconcerned spectator. 'This approval is most surprising at first sight,' comments Mr. Wormald, 'for no one seems less like the calm, unconcerned spectator than Father Hughes. The explanation is, I think, that he has seen himself doing two things: on the one hand - and primarily - as exploring historical facts, and on the other as providing running commentary in the capacity of a keen partisan.'
