An album for Leap Year Day introduced by Elizabeth Cowell featuring Leap Year children, proposals, and happenings
The programme includes Leap Year messages from Claude Dampier (and of course Mrs. Gibson) and Arthur Askey
Special lyrics and arrangements by Eric Spear
The programme compiled by Leslie Baily and Michael Doone
Produced by Francis Worsley
Here is a programme of information, interest, humour - on the whole, a light-hearted affair - showing listeners all that it has been possible to discover about that one year in every four years called Leap Year, during which, by tradition, ladies have certain privileges, notably the traditional right of proposing to the man of their choice.
To what extent they take advantage of it is a moot point. Leslie Baily, Michael Doone, and Francis Worsley have been trying to find one who actually did propose to the man she married; and if they succeed. they will bring her to the microphone, always providing she is willing to come. It may be that many ladies propose, but that few will admit it.
Then we shall have a dramatisation of that chivalrous little scene enacted in the city of Aurora, U.S.A., on Leap Year Day, 1936, when the city fathers yielded their places to the women, and the men gracefully retired from all the key positions, even the Fire Brigade being run by a girl.
It is hoped, too, to, say something about celebrities whose birthdays fell on Leap Year Day, like Rossini and Montcalm.

An epilogue to
' The Shadow of the Swastika ' by A. L. Lloyd and Igor Vinogradoff
Music composed by George Walter
The BBC Northern Orchestra, under the direction of the composer
Production by Laurence Gilliam
This programme will bring up to date the remorseless exposure of the history of the Nazi Party, which has been broadcast during the past months under the title ' The Shadow of the Swastika '.
Tonight we shall be able to study the methods of Hitlerism when the Nazi machine is keyed to wartime tempo, and see how Hitler's line of conduct, laid down years ago in ' Mein Kampf', has been followed now that his reign has reached its logical conclusion by embroiling Germany in war with Great Britain and France.

' By Proxy'
A thriller by Algernon Blackwood , read by the authsr
Listeners who heard Algernon Black wood's recent broadcast of his story about the boy with the heavy bag will be delighted with ' By Proxy '. There are few living authors who can equal Mr. Blackwood in the writing or telling of a short story. His works possess an atmosphere unique — not exactly thrilling, but conveying a sense of the strange and uncanny that is unforgettable.
