followed by a talk on Christmas chickens and turkeys by Alan Thompson and a wholesaler
The time has come to think about roast chickens for Christmas, if we can get them, or about turkeys, if we can afford them. So, for his talk today, Alan Thompson is bringing a wholesaler to the microphone, and they will discuss prices that are likely to be ruling round about Christmas-time. Housewives will also get a few hints about choosing table poultry, and those of us who have bred a few chickens in our backyards will be interested to hear the conclusions of these experts about the possibility of rearing spring cockerels on household scraps.

A reconstruction from the original sources of Byron's last journey to Greece in 1823, with its effect on the liberation of the Greek people
Produced by Stephen Potter
Lord Byron was born in 1788 on the eve of the French Revolution. During his youth he readily assimilated the new ideals of freedom and universal brotherhood, which permeated the thought of every country after the revolution and during the Napoleonic wars. When the Greeks began their struggle for independence he went to their assistance, and died at Missolonghi in 1824.
