OXFORDPROSPECT – IDYLLS OF THE KING: Arthurian Legend Brought to the Stage by Magdalen College School.

What a good idea for school pupils to be studying the Arthurian legends, the great national epic of the English culture. There is an immense amount to be learned from these tales, which date back to the earliest mediaeval times. Nobody really knows who the real King Arthur was or if he even existed, but he certainly has associations all over south-western England, notably at Glastonbury and Tintagel, and he may have been a Celtic hero. Tennyson was one of many poets who wrote the stories down. His verse narrative has been adapted for the stage and turned into a fast-moving drama acted and sung by the pupils of Magdalen College School.

See my report on the seventh annual National Oil Company’s Congress, held in London during 20th and 21st  June 2013. It included leaders from both national and international oil companies, together with representatives from national governments, energy consultants and energy support organisations. The role of partnerships was highlighted throughout the Congress. The conference explored partnership in all its aspects. This included covering operational, exploration and production, technological, knowledge sharing, innovation, managerial, project development, marketing and fiscal issues. In addition, there were presentations by various national and international oil and gas companies about on-going and future projects that demonstrated the need why partnerships are so vital in today’s world. In addition, there were discussions that include the impact of energy and economic policy, and how the market might in evolve by the end of the century.
