Mr. ARTHUR BRYANT (Educational Adviser, Bonar Law College, Ashridge): ' The Country
Mr. Arthur Bryant seeks an answer to the puzzle of national character with an examination of a number of national types, among them the parson, the yoeman farmer, the craftsman, and the housewife. He will trace their descent, and illustrate their peculiarities at different periods in their history. When opportunity offers, they will speak for themselves through quotations from biographies, memories and fiction. Tonight he examines the English country gentleman.

Under the direction of S. KNEALE KELLEY
Tonight's bill offers an interesting opportunity for comparison of home-bred and trans-Atlantic radio variety entertainment. No two regular broadcasting teams arc better fitted in their different ways to represent native taste than Mr. Flotsam and Mr. Jetsam and Clapham and Dwyer; their reputations and versatility have increased with the growth of the listening audience. Bill and Elsa Newell are, of course, well-known and well-liked over hero, both on the air and on the halls; tonight they make a welcome reappearance in the programmes on their return from a visit to their own country. Joseph Wagstaffe is broadcasting for the second time here: he is a singer of syncopated songs, and a very popular broadcaster in America. Bert Copley is uncompromisingly British in style and approach, and Janet Joye, with her imitations of famous film stars, unites the two styles represented in tonight's bill.
