2.30 Feature Programmes and Topical Talks: Young Canada Come to England
The aim of this series is to bring the outside world to the, classroom and to intersperse ordinary lessons with something unusual and fresh that yet adds all the time to general knowledge. One can imagine, for instance, few schoolchildren who, if they had had a holiday last Friday, would not have queued up to hear how Robert Flaherty went to India to make the film Elephant Boy, especially when they were to hear Sabu, the elephant boy himself, speak. The previous Friday they heard sea stories told by Commander A.B. Campbell, and the week before F. H. Grisewood ('Our Bill') gave them a programme dealing with preparations for the Coronation. Today some of the three hundred Canadian schoolchildren who are visiting England to see the Coronation and to stay in English schools will give their impressions of England and say something about thtir homes in Canada.
