ONE of the great handicaps placed upon export business is the delay in payment and the risk of bad debts that it often involves. If it were possible to insure against the risk and hence obviate the delay by obtaining payment from a bank, exporters could engage in a far larger trade. Systems of insurance for this purpose are now being introduced, and their benefits to British trade overseas will form the subject of this talk by Sir William Larke , one of the leading figures in the world of iron and steel.

The Speech of the Prime Minister, the Rt. Hon.
STANLEY BALDWIN, M.P., proposing the toast of ' Tlio Company of Master Mariners '
LAST year tho newly-founded
Company of Master Mariners held its first banquet, and the speeches at it were broadcast. This year the Company comes to its second annual celebration with all the added prestige of a year's successful progress, and the presence of the Prince of Wales, which is made doubly welcome by his recent appointment as Master of the Merchant Navy. Listeners, who have come to look forward to the Prince's broadcasts as the most delightful events in the programmes, will be especially anticipating this one, as the occasion is one after his own heart, and the company of these master spirits of the sea, in whom is incarnate all the long tradition of the British seaman, is certain to inspire a speech in his happiest vein.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
