Which is the most difficult animal to stalk ? The number of big-game hunters who have hunted in four continents is comparatively limited, but Martin Stephens is one of them, and so he is. able to make his comparisons at first hand, and to award the palm after discussing most of the little-known species.

' The Orient-In Cairo '
K. H. HUGGINS
K. H. Huggins who today gives the first of two travel talks on Egypt is in charge of the geography broadcasts for Scottish schools, and is a lecturer in geography in the University of Glasgow. Cairo is one of the many cities in which East is said to meet West, and is therefore a fitting point from which to start a year of travel talks on the Orient. Mr. Huggins will take his listeners with him past mosques and through bazaars into the narrow by-ways of the city, and from Cairo itself to the wealthy suburbs by the banks of the Nile, a few miles beyond which the desert starts.

Commander A. B. CAMPBELL
(Reminiscences of ocean travel inspired by the launching of the Queen
Today Commander A. B. Campbell will take the opportunity afforded by the launching of the Queen Elizabeth to indulge in a few reminiscences of a lifetime afloat. From the days when he served in the Orient, the first steam ship to carry mails to Australia, Commander Campbell has sailed on almost every sea. He has been through the Suez Canal sixty-three times, crossed the Equator seventy times, and travelled three times round the world, each time in a different way, and has seen the change from single-screw to twinscrew ships, the growth of the refrigerator system from the days of salt pork and bully beef, and the gradual replacement of reciprocating machinery by turbines.

V. Sackville-West, who is today giving the last talk in this series, is of course well known not only as both novelist and poet, but as a great literary devotee of the countryside. She has been described by Hugh Walpole as ' a woman with every sort of talent', which no one can doubt who has read works so greatly different as ' The Edwardians ' and ' The Land ', her great poem of the countryside. Many listeners will remember the talks she gave recently on gardens in the West of England.

The photographs of the German occupation of Brussels that appeared in the London Press a few days after the event, made, as many will remember, news-picture history, in August, 1914. They were indeed unique since they were taken by a raw young photographer without a single foreign word at his command, and after the expulsion of all foreign newspapermen by the Germans. Today Charles Holliday comes to the microphone to tell the story of the nerve-racking three days in which he took these pictures — history recorded from behind Venetian blinds, from behind window curtains, and from under a mackintosh.
