A dramatic monologue, being the audible meditation of a traveller by road from London to the Land's End
Written and spoken by FILSON YOUNG
Produced by PETER CRESWELL
TO travel hopefully with Mr. Filson Young
-L is better than to arrive with many a Baedeker-stuffed bore, and when the journey is down the road to the West-' from London to Land's End '—what more could the stationary hiker desire? All the fun of travel with an enchanting companion, without the trouble and expense of moving ! ' The Road to the West ' is described as an audible meditation. As Mr. Filson Young sits at the wheel of his car moving westward, you hear the things he hears ... birds singing, the organ of Exeter Cathedral.... And you hear as well the thoughts that flicker across his mind as he journeys past the pageant of Southern England. This is a new type of radio entertainment, uniting the best of the guide-book and the travel-talk with that exciting sense of ' being there ’ that a good radio play can give. Listeners who missed ' The Road to the West ' last September should hear it tonight.

THE WIRELESS SINGERS
RUDOLPH DOLMETSCH (Harpsichord)
RUDOLPH DOLMETSCH, who is no stranger to listeners, is a gifted member of a famous family. His father, Arnold Dolmetsch , is not only a high authority on all matters relating to old music and musical instruments, particularly of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, but a practical one. He actually makes these instruments—violas, recorders, clavichords, harpsichords, and many others -and makes them very beautifully indeed; as a craftsman he has had few rivals in any age. But he not only makes them, he plays upon them. and within his own family, all of whom are accomplished executive musicians, he has revived the domestic ' Consort ' of the seventeenth century. The family lives at Haslemere, in Surrey, and every summer for years now a Dolmetsch festival of old music, which musicians in all countries of the world have been glad to attend, has been a feature of English musical life.
