Correspondence and papers of Maurice Brinsmead Latey (1915-91), chief commentator, BBC External Services, 1972-5. Latey was a central figure in the BBC's external services from 1939 until his death in 1991, specialising in particular in broadcasting to Eastern Europe. Latey also wrote and lectured extensively and was especially interested in totalitarian regimes and the relationship between religion and politics.

Where possible the original arrangement within the files has been retained.
