A personal choice of records presented by Bruce Belfrage.
Bruce Belfrage came to broadcasting from the stage, which he graced for twelve years not only in London and the provinces but in Canada, the U.S.A., and South America. Since 1928 he has played hundreds of parts in radio drama-though none more notable than his recent role of the narrator to the Pickwick and 'Vanity Fair' serials. He joined the BBC staff in 1935 and has recently become one of the regular news-readers.

Songs of gratitude on gramophone records
A play by Anthony Gilbert
Produced by M. H. Allen
Here is the first of three or four plays which have been specially written by Anthony Gilbert for production by Mary Allen. Each is an amusing story about a rather high-flown London pickpocket, who has a way with him.
The first play opens in a crowded
London street-in a shopping centre, where Grace and Milly are gazing at an attractive siren suite. Then comes a scream: ' My bracelet has been stolen!' Is it the man selling matches, with a patch over one eye ? Is it the striking-looking man with golden hair and beard ? Which it is, and what eventuates, is told in this first thrilling little play. Listeners will surely want to hear the next.
