by D. H. Kahnweiler
On February 22, 1907, Henry Kahnweiler, aged twenty-two, arrived in Paris to become a picture dealer. Shortly afterwards he met Picasso, then twenty-five, and became his dealer and friend. In this talk he remembers the Picasso of those early days and considers some facets of the artist's personality.
A broadcast version of M. Kahnweiler's lecture at the Institute of Contemporary Arts in connection with the Institute's current exhibition Picasso Himself.
Talk by W. Mays
Lecturer in Philosophy
In the University of Manchester
The value of brain models in studying animal behaviour raises questions of probability and randomness. If animals learn by trial and error, can machines be built to do likewise? What precisely distinguishes vital from physical?
First of three talks
A recollection of Charlotte Street in the 1930s by Robert Pocock
Produced by Francis Dillon
Until the blitz Charlotte Street was well known as the centre of a community of Bloomsbury artists and writers, most of them young and with their way to make. In this programme Robert Pocock presents life in Charlotte Street as he knew it when he lived there in pre-war years.
Two talks by F. A. Hayek Professor of Social and Moral
Science in the University of Chicago Englishmen, the speaker says, are convinced that their individual liberty is protected by a tradition summed up by the phrase ' the rule of law.' But the very fact that the name has been retained in current use appears to have prevented people from recognising that it has lost some of its original meaning.
In this talk Professor Hayek makes a fresh assessment of what is essential to the rule of law and compares the different processes by which it has developed in England and on the Continent.
Compiled by Alan Pryce-Jones

Cohen on the political scene in Spain as reflected in two French journals - the Left-wing Roman Catholic Esprit and the Independent Communist Temps Modernes.
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a

- not those of today.
