Joe Davis won the Professional Snooker Championship of 1932, beating Clark McConachy; and, during the match, made the record snooker break of 109, potting thirty-two consecutive balls. He won the Championship again this year, beating Willie Smith. He is at present playing exhibition games round London. In his talk tonight, Joe Davis will touch on billiards as a profession, on the various conditions governing the game, and how he came into it. As he also won the Professional Billiards Championship last year, enthusiasts can look forward to a fascinating quarter of an hour with the Gordon Richards of the cue.

Mr. THOMAS GRANT: 'The Sinking of the Sontay'
Mr. Thomas Grant is one of three famous brothers, all of them photographers of long standing on The Daily Mirror. It has been said of him that he is the world's most travelled photographer. Among many of his eventful journeys was that to Japan in 1912, when the Mikado became seriously ill. Upon the Emperor's death, Mr. Grant showed his amazing resourcefulness. No one was permitted to take photographs of the funeral except the Court photographer; Mr. Grant promptly arranged to become his assistant. The funeral procession, in accordance with custom, took place after dark, and, though he had to be in position twelve hours beforehand, he was compelled to wear evening clothes and a silk hat. But he got his photographs. Tonight he tells listeners of his thrilling experience on board the French troopship, Sontay, when she was sunk during the War. He had been official photographer with the Allied Forces in Salonica, and was on his way home. She was torpedoed, and, actually only four minutes elapsed before she went to the bottom, yet, again, he got his photographs. He tells a gripping story of the French captain who, before going down with his ship, climbed to the highest point of the stern, and, waving his cap, cried defiantly: ' Vive la France' !
A Topical Supplement of the Week's Programmes
The second of the new Saturday 'Stop Press' programmes, featuring items of topical interest which have come to hand too late for inclusion in the printed programmes of the Press or The Radio Times. "In Town Tonight" has been started experimentally as a weekly framework for the various 'surprise items' which have been hitherto scattered about the programmes, often at times inconvenient to the ordinary listener.
