Lord Phillips of Ellesmere KBE FRS in interview with Dr Max Blythe: Interview 1

In this, the first of six interviews, Lord Phillips of Ellesmere KBE FRS, reviews the times of his boyhood, parents, family, impressions of Ellesmere in the 1920s and 1930s, early schooling and railway travels. Initial discussion charts the branches of his family, the Phillips, Bagnalls, Finneys and Woods, followed by reference to strong Methodist traditions and his father's service to the local Wesleyan circuit as a lay-preacher. Patterns of life in a cottage 'sandwiched between the local workhouse and the cemetery' emerge, with reference to his father's tailoring workshop and its formative experiences.

Dr Derek Wylie FRCP FRCS FRCA in interview with Dr Aileen Adams CBE FRCS FRCA

At the start of this interview Dr Derek Wylie, dean of the Faculty of Anaesthetists 1967-70 and dean of St. Thomas' Medical School 1974-79, talks about his schooling and training in medicine at Cambridge University and at St Thomas' Medical School, where he graduated in 1943. He then speaks of his appointment as anaesthetist on the honorary staff of St Thomas' in 1947 following wartime service in the RAF in the Middle East. His publication of a textbook with Harold Churchill-Davidson and clinical investigations into muscle relaxant drugs are discussed.
