During October, 1959, the British Council's representative in Germany asked for a team of experts from Glasgow to study and discuss with the German authorities the cultural life of the City of Hamburg, with special reference to the Volkshochschule system of adult education and including, if practicable, music, drama, the fine arts and the public libraries. The purpose of the visit, which was arranged as part of the British Council's programme of educational and cultural visits and exchanges, was to assess what is being done in the field of Further Education in Hamburg, to discuss post war developments and to give members of the delegation an opportunity to exchange opinions with their “opposite numbers” on common problems and possible ways of dealing with them.
