Talk by Dennis Griffiths
The firebrick industry grew up on the borders of Cheshire and Flintshire, where the special clay needed as raw material was to be found. - One of the firms still manufacturing can trace its history back to 1737, and another to 1792. Dennis Griffiths belongs to a family which has had intimate connections with both firms for five generations.

Music by J. H. Squire
Eventide in Autumn An Ant's Antics
God walked in my garden The Panda's Parade It is nearly 28 years since J. H. Squire founded his famous Celeste Octet, but his musical career began long before that. At the age of twelve this adventurous character was playing the cornet in the streets of New York, an act typical of many that have succeeded it in a long and varied life. Squire, in fact. has always been a soldier of fortune, and has had a life as full of ' rough stùff' as of quiet music. His Octet, which has been called the father of all small orchestras, holds the records of going on the air without an audition and of having had three dates fixed before its first broadcast.
