-That's what I say'
This is the seventh of twelve broadcasts, each prefaced by a short scene from everyday life, and each illustrating the usage of some familiar catch phrase. Are such phrases just a way of avoiding clear thinking, or do they represent the wisdom of the ages ? Speakers of wide experience try to find an answer.

Variety Department Experimental Hour (in fifteen minutes). No. 2-' Adventure in Sound '. Presented by Eric Spear.
This is the second of a new series of programmes in which the Variety department is exploiting the resources of radro technique. Naturally enough, the department hopes that the title will not deter listeners from seeing whether or not they approve. Last week you heard something about the life of a railway locomotive. Tonight an even bolder experiment has been undertaken which will present a man's life solely in terms of the sounds he hears.
