'One of his great favourites,' wrote the mother of a small boy, ' is " The London Express During the sequel telling of John's journey, he sat perfectly still and more absorbed than I have ever known ham and, as soon as it was over, demanded that next we should hear the story of how they came back after their holiday in London! A second opportunity of hearing the stories would be very welcome indeed.'
So here on Wednesday and Thursday this week come these stories, written by Monica Jarrett and told by Julia Lang , to please not only this boy but innumerable other children-girls as well as boys -who delight in the experiences of watching trains and riding in them.
Julia Lang tells today's story, too, another one of real life-jean Sutcliffe's tale of Peter, the little black kitten; and tomorrow and on Friday Daphne Oxenford brings us two little fantasies. ' The House that no one wanted,' by Ursula Hourihane , and Ann Elliott 's cumulative tale, ' Pat's Umbrella.' Catherine Edwards introduces the programmes again this week. Elizabeth A. Taylor

Mrs. Dale, the doctor's wife, records the daily happenings in the life of her family
Script by Jonquil Antony
Last week Dr. Dale went to Berwick in an endeavour to settle the trouble between his father and .his brother-in-law, George Trotter. Unfortunately a valuable bull had died and Grandfather Dale blamed George. They quarrelled violently and Grandfather Dale ordered George off the farm. Mrs. Dale, who had begun her spring-cleaning, received a letter from the Doctor stating that he was bringing his father back with him. Bob received a letter from Mr. Cooper's solicitors requesting a return of the money he had been overcharged on the furniture in his flat.
The first rehearsal of the Parkwood Hill Coronation Pageant took place. Jenny arrived very late and obviously upset. Mr Fulton and the producer reprimanded her. She afterwards confided to Gwen that she had broken off her engagement to Peter.
