Summary

Historian Peter Frankopan, Professor Edith Hall and author and drama practitioner Kwame Kwei-Armah join Anne McElvoy to debate how the concept of success fares today; it was subject to debate on the Third Programme in 1967. Personal or public - how do we imagine success in the contemporary world? Have our hopes for a successful society grown or diminished, is a sense of personal integrity as strong as it was? Archives from the Third Programme include a transcript from 5 June 1967 of a programme produced by Douglas Cleverdon in which Philip Toynbee, Sir Michael Redgrave, Malcolm Muggeridge and John Berger talk to host Philip O'Connor about the nature of success. Have our definitions changed at all?
