Friday afternoon is traditionally the time for lighter things ; here is a jolly three-quarters of an hour when the week's work is finished and the end of the term is in sight. The programme is delightful. Stuart Robertson will sing songs with rollicking choruses. Clifford Collin aon's persevering companion, 'George', has at last been allowed to give a Travel Talk of his very own, with effects. In the next sketch ' Mr. Addleshaw,' a Lancashire lad, meets ' Jean-Francois', the Breton onion seller, and you can imagine what fun there will be. Then more songs and choruses will follow, and the programme will end up with a Surprise Item which you must not miss. You can start guessing what it is. '
Introduced by Sir GRANVILLE BANTOCK

This stirring radio drama was first broadcast on October 2, 1930, and had the distinction of being the first radio play to appear in print, having been published in three instalments in The Radio Times of September 19 and 26, and October 3, 1930. Readers and listeners since that date, however, may like to know something of the theme. It is a military, but by no means a militarist, play, and concerns the dilemma of a 'temporary officer' promoted to the command of a division in an imaginary war of the future, and ordered to throw in his 10,000 men as a feint to a general offensive. Major-General Gore knows that obedience to the order means the sacrifice of his whole division, and does not believe that, even then, the general offensive will succeed. Shall he obey, or disobey? His views, those of his three brigadiers and of the divisional padre, and Gore's ultimate decision and its consequences, will absorb listeners tonight.
