TRANSCRIPT: SEQ. 4: Father Huddlestone: "I think from everything I have heard and know it's really a very happy future. I think Tanganyika could be a model for the whole of African in the field of race relations. Because the relationship there between the government and people so far has been a happy one and we have got a really outstanding leader in Julius Nyerere. I think everything there has got a really happy future but of course you've have got to face the fact that Tanganyika is part of Africa. It's caught up in the same movement which are there and it would be stupid to prophesise."
QUESTION: "But you feel that the revolution, if there is one will be bloodless?"
ANSWER: "I do, I think the revolution, I don't suppose you could call it revolution, but the emergence of Nigeria I suppose is a good example of what can happen or Ghana."
