Discussion between John Arlott, Frank Byers and Lord Samuel

Discussion between John Arlott, (Liberal candidate) Frank Byers (former Chairman of the Party) and Lord Samuel Questioned by two members of the public. (Butler, 1956: 61)

David Butler’s comments regarding the broadcasts are, on the whole, uncomplimentary. For example, he describes the Labour Party broadcast with Attlee (leader of the Party) as the Party’s ‘least-inspired programme.’ (Butler, 1956: 59)

Good descriptions of all these broadcasts can be found in David Butler (1956) The British General Election of 1955, pp. 58-64.

Broadcast 19th May 1955
