2 — Commonwealth Contact
For the past four months, the two halves of the Commonwealth Trans-Antarctic Expedition have been established on either side of the continent which Dr. Vivian Fuchs hopes to cross later this year. They are now in regular radio communication, and this programme is devoted mainly to the New Zealand half of the Expedition wintering on Ross Island under the leadership of Sir Edmund Hillary. It tells of their recent dog journeys up on to the Polar plateau from Scott Base, and explains their part in the coming pincer-movement on the Pole.

Ernest Bradbury writes on page 6
by Ted Child
Ted Child , a cockney in his early twenties, has no permanent job. He has worked as a sticker-on of stamps in an export office, as a stage-hand, as an ice-cream vendor, and a tearer-up of boxes in a shoe shop. This preference for casual work is part of his design for living, the main purpose of which is to write. Sometimes the system threatens to fail down and in this talk he tells of one summer when he felt particularly unequipped to face the hazards inherent in his chosen way of life.
