TRANSCRIPT: SEQ. 4: (MR. WILSON): "In welcoming the Honorary graduate.. which I do with the greatest of pleasure, may I express my personal satisfaction at getting Dr. Heath this morning into my lobby".
TRANSCRIPT: SEQ. 6: (MR. HEATH): "Today on this occasion I have none of these advantages. I have never studied here ... I am not a technologist ... except perhaps in a very limited area of marine technology which is something I ought to mention, and if he is rally and genuinely asking for advice as to whether he should serialise in the Sunday Times or take himself for a sail around the Solent, I think I could advise him which course to pursue... and I did not serve in a government... indeed I was never invited to serve in a government... headed by the Chancellor of this University."

Background: Mr. Edward Heath, Britain's Prime Minister, received an Honorary Doctorate of Technology at Bradford University on Saturday morning (30 October). The degree was conferred by Chancellor Harold Wilson, leader of Britain's opposition Labour Party. On arrival at the university, Mr. Heath was greeted by a large crowd which included many hecklers. Several eggs were thrown, and one narrowly missed the Prime Minister. The protest was mainly directed against unemployment and Northern Ireland internment policies. Inside, however, both leaders spoke light-heartedly during the brief ceremony.
