What it means to us '
Among the many listeners who have written to Donald Tyerman in connection with this series is a Hampshire housewife who knows from very practical experience what the economic war means to her. bhe will be in the studio with him tonight.
Maggie Teyte is among the first of our singers, whether in opera or light opera. She has excelled as Melisande and Madam Butterfly, and equally as Lady Mary Carlyle in the musical version of "Monsieur Beaucaire".
After two years at the Royal College of Music, she studied singing in Paris under Jean de Reszke.
Two years later she made her debut at a Sunday night concert at Monte Carlo with Paderewski, and at the age of eighteen she made her name as Melisande at the Opera-Comique in Paris.

Lyrics by R. P. Weston and Bert Lee. Music by Jack Waller and Joseph Tunbridge. Radio adaptation by Martyn C. Webster

At long last the BBC has secured the broadcasting rights of this famous stage comedy.
A wager that involves speaking nothing but the truth for twenty-four hours might seem fairly easy to win, but when not even ' white ' lies are permitted, the task begins to be formidable. This is, however, the undertaking that confronts the hero of this uproarious series of episodes, and the difficulty of it may be well imagined when it is explained that this hero is junior partner in a firm of land agents who want to sell a property on the top of a crumbling sea cliff.

A highly imaginative play for broadcasting intended to show that ' careless talk may give away vital secrets'
Characters you will hear are: German Intelligence Officers; Admiral von Reitberg, Captain Crawford, R.N., various Naval Intelligence Officers, Air - Marshal Stewart , Flight - Lieutenant Peter Medhurst , Flying-Officer Carbrooke, enemy agents, workmen, chorus girls, and Cabinet ministers played by members of the BBC
Production by Peter Creswell
Here is a play to drive home the significance of careless talk and its dangers to a country at war. All too innocent are the men and women in public-house and railway train, and at dinner table, who, in this dramatic object lesson, let fall the vital scraps of information that may be overheard and correlated by the enemy.
The occasion in question in this play is that of the trials of a new German battleship that are the signal for the putting into operation of a British bomber aeroplane of entirely new design. The pilot, the rear gunner, and a man in the aircraft factory are all guilty,of careless talk, the result of which is all too clearly shown in the climax of this play.
