Description
Prime Minister James Callaghan makes a speech at Ruskin College, Oxford, on education. He says too few students enter industry; too many girls abandon science; industry also has its own shortcomings in the area of recruitment. Concerns should be aired. Basic literacy, numeracy, mutual respect and an appetite for knowledge are key. Includes the sound of heckling from his audience.
