Open Eye: Region 13 - lucky in lectures

Click to follow
Region Thirteen was formed from the overlapping of two other regions in 1973.

This year, in order to celebrate its quarter-centenary, it has organised a series of special commemorative lectures by OU tutors, which, while clearly informative and educational in intent, are designed to be light- hearted in presentation.
