- The Problem
' The Commonwealth has divided into ten independent nations, but the process is by no means complete ... It is my job as a constitutional lawyer who has specialised in the process of constitution-making to help the local leaders to find solutions to the problems which confront them, in order that the process may be expedited.'
(harpsichord): on gramophone records La Dauphine (Rameau)
Les barricades mysterieuses (Couperin) L'Arlequine (Couperin)
by C. F. Ramuz
C. F. Ramuz (1878-1942) is perhaps best known for The Soldier's Tale, which was put to music by Stravinsky in 1917. In the poem La Grands Guerre du Sondrebond he recalls, with his own highly individual style of humour, one of the most obscure episodes in European history-the Sondrebond campaign of 1847, which was Switzerland's last war.

Talk by J. B. Ward Perkins
Director of the British School at Rome
Since the war a number of excavations by Italian and Swedish archaeologists on the Palatine Hill and the Forum have thrown new light on the early history of Rome. The speaker considers to what extent the ancient legends about the foundation of Rome are confirmed or contradicted by this new evidence.
