Notes, topics or text 

The recording of BR and Lord Hailsham's discussion on "Religion and the Training of the Young" will have to be postponed as Lord Hailsham has been invited to dine with the Queen Mother and cannot refuse. Gregson is concerned that the postponement will interfere with another talk he is considering for BR, on "world strategy today in the light of the hydrogen bomb with particular reference to Asia", the other speakers being Sir John Slessor or Sir Phillip Joubert, Sir Llewellyn Woodward, Donald McLachlan, and perhaps Krishna Menon. The topic is of particular timeliness due to the forthcoming publication of the government white paper on defence.

BR's "Man's Peril" talk was given on the Home Service and repeated on the General Overseas Service.
