Second of two talks on political attitudes in independent Africa
Ϯ by ALi A. MAZRUI
Lecturer in Political Science, Makerere University College, Uganda
The speaker considers that the political ideas of the new Africa are forced to make their international début in old-fashioned dress-in the limited vocabulary which developed in opposition to colonialism. Does this mean that the ideas are outmoded He makes a plea for a more perceptive assessment by other nations of African fears of ' neo-colonialism ' and of the desire for * non-alignment.'
The comedy by Jakob Michael Reinhold LENZ adapted for the modern stage by Bertolt Brecht translated by RICHARD GRUNBERGER with Alec McCowen
Broken is his backbone, it's his task
To break his pupils' first to last. The German schoolmaster-on your memory impress
Producer and product of unnaturalness.
Pupils and teachers of a new age
Him clearly in his servility
That from the past you may break free.

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.
