Gregson asks BR to contribute a talk for the series, "The European Complex", to be broadcast during the last three months of the year. BR's talk would be number 7. Gregson aims that this series will demonstrate "Britain's close involvement in the affairs and history of Europe, ... show people in other parts of the world that we can have a legitimate pride in our heritage without setting ourselves up as a master race." BR's particular talk should discuss European reason and scientific achievement stemming from the study of man over the divine. Gregson suggests BR contribute one or two discussions with Arnold Toynbee and Dr. Bronowski while he is in London. As well the recording of the series on the influence of foreign countries on BR as discussed with Gordon Mosley should be recorded at that time, and would perhaps be unscripted.
