Today's story: "Grandmother Lucy and her Hats" by Joyce Wood
The poem this week begins:
Follow my Bangalorey man, Follow my Bangalorey man, I'll do all that ever I can,
To follow my Bangalorey man.
And on Tuesday and Thursday you can follow him to India and see elephants and dancers through the windows.

Ten programmes on career opportunities for young adults
with Paddy Feeny and Percy Walton, Secretary, Institute of Youth Employment Officers
Perhaps wanting to work out-of-doors is a natural reaction against the constriction of school life. In this programme three young horticulturists and two young men in the building industry tell us why they chose an outdoor job. Their careers and prospects are contrasted with the career pattern of somebody who has deliberately chosen an indoor job.

A remarkable story of Britain's smallest professional theatre
For two people as dedicated to the theatre as Barrie and Marianne Hesketh, the decision they took five years ago to go and live on the Isle of Mull might have seemed calculated to end their theatrical careers for good... Instead, in the thirty-four-seat converted cow-shed they call Mull Little Theatre they have found a new artist-freedom and have played Chekhov, Shaw, Strindberg, Ibsen, and Shakespeare to audiences totalling over two thousand by the end of last summer.
This film is the story of their enterprise and how they have adapted to their new surroundings.
With Eleanor Bron, John Fortune
Song by Ray Davies
