by Victor Paz Estenssoro
As President of Bolivia from 1952 to 1956 Dr. Paz Estenssoro. in face of great difficulties, brought about-in a country as large as France and Spain combined —a bloodless revolution in which he nationalised tin mines, built roads and railways, introduced agrarian reform and universal suffrage. He thus established himself as one of the leading architects of contemporary Latin America.
In the first of two talks Dr. Paz sets out the background to what he calls Latin America's ' national revolution ' and analyses its political and social consequences.

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.
