MARY BONIN (Soprano) 6.30 TIME SIGNAL, GREENWICH; WEATHER FORECAST, FIRST GENERAL NEWS BULLETIN
OF all the wild animals that enchanted our youthful 'imagination, the gorilla is the most impressive ; and rightly so, for he is both monstrous and mysterious. His ferocity and his elusiveness make him harder to study than almost any other beast. During the past eighteen months Mr. Neville Sharp found himself, as an official of the Government of Nigeria, posted'to a portion of the mandated territory of the Cameroons, where he was frequently without a white man to talk to for weeks at a time. Happily, he found a hobby ready to hand in the gorilla, of whose habits he made a detailed and adventurous study, one by-product of which is a collection of skulls which is perhaps unique in Europe.

An Eye Witness Account of the International
Rugby Match by Mr. O. L. OWEN.
S.B. from Edinburgh
THE Waratahs have so far amply confirmed, in their International matches, the verdict passed on them by competent judges at the outset of .their triumphant tour. This afternoon they have met their third great test, and whether Scotland have met the same fate as Ireland and Wales, or whether they have at last turned the tables on the tourists, every Rugby enthusiast North and South of the Tweed will be eager to hear Mr. Owen's review of one of the most interesting matches of the year.
in 'THE KIDDIES' HOUR'
Six New Kiddies' Songs by EILEEN DE MANCHA and H. C. G. STEVENS (at the Piano)
THE chief event of the theatrical season of 1927, so far as the lighter side of the drama is concerned, has been the return of Gertrude Lawrence , after a highly successful stay in New York. She has been drawing crowds to His Majesty's Theatre, from which, it will be remembered, parts of Oh, Kay ! were broadcast last week, and London has confirmed the verdict of New York that her talent and personality are greater than ever before. Those who recall her brilliant acting, with Beatrice Lillie, in the ' Fallen Babies ' sketch in a bygone Chariot revue, will have the keenest anticipations of her performance to-day.
