' The Place we Live In '

Here is the first broadcast of a new course that will be of particular interest to city youngsters living for the first time in the country. There are many new and interesting things for them to see and do, and much for them to find out. These broadcasts will encourage the children to keep ears and eyes wide open and begin really to understand and enjoy the places where they find themselves. The broadcasts will contain short dramatic interludes dealing with all sorts of aspects of rural life.
Today you will be taken to a village smithy where some of the town children have come to watch the smith at his work.

A fairy tale retold, with words and music by Henry Reed
Produced by David Porter
Listeners have heard The Six Servants and The Shoes that were danced into holes. The Sleeping Beauty completes the triology of fairy plays, written and devised by Henry Reed , who has also written the music for each. Listeners are familiar with his Fables, which have long been popular in the North and were one of the most successful items in the recent series ' Roundabout '. These little fairy plays are on much the same lines, but are essentially romantic and keep faithfully to the stories frjm which they are taken. Henry Reed was once pianist with Henry Hall 's Band at Gleneagles.

The BBC Theatre Orchestra (leader, Tate Gilder ), conductor, Stanford Robinson
'Reverie', a programme of quiet music late in the evening, designed to soothe rather than to exhilarate, proved to be one of the most appealing of the Theatre Orchestra's programmes.
Tate Gilder will once again be heard playing the signature tune
' E Canta il Grillo' (The Cricket Sings). This charming little Italian song by Billi seems to intrigue listeners very much and many have written to enquire its name. It certainly sets very aptly the mood of the programme.
