on Regional Programme London

View in Radio Times

Mr. S. P. B. MAIS
There are two schools of walker : those who go for a walk and those who go somewhere. Mr. S. P. B. Mais is going to change all that this winter and spring. In this series of twelve talks which he makes his how to a new broadcast public-the Saturday
morning one-he will set himself toanswer the question so many Londoners ask themselves every week-'What shall we do this week-elld?' He will follow the procedure that was so successful in his 'Unknown
Island ' series earlier in the year, and after selecting two or three accesible places of interest, visit them himself and record his personal impression for the benefit of listeners. He will visit such places the museums, picture-gallery, the docks, the Isle of Dogs, and many other of the nooks and crannies of London which the city's growth tends to make more and more remote from the average man and woman Mr. Mais is as vigorous a walker as he is a talker: he travelled over 15.000 miles in the course of his 'Unknown Island' explorations and Londoners could ask no more enthusiastic or well-informed week-end guide than him.
