BBC4: 'Great Thinkers in their own words'
Raymond Williams on Cambridge, Richard Hoggart's invention of cultural studies, and F.R. Leavis:

I'll say this for Sir Charles Percy Snow:
Wrote that 'Two Cultures' piece, years ago.
    Of course Leavis was furious
    Made remarks mosr injurious --
What exactly? You don't want to know.
(Not so much just 'Yes but ...' as just 'NO!')
