Mr GEORGE BINNEY: 'Life at a Hudson's Bay Company s Post
IN HIS BROADCAST this afternoon George Binney will trace the history of Hudson Bay from its discovery by the English navigator and explorer, Henry Hudson , in 1610, down to the present day. In 1670 Charles II gave a Charter to the Hudson Bay Company, and they were given a vast expanse of land round this great inland sea, and they started there and then to trade for furs with the Indians, to search for gold, and to look for safe and quick routes to China.
In this land of ice and cold they built a trading port at the mouth of one of the rivers, and proceeded to carry on. George Binney went out with three expeditions to Spitzbergen in 1921, 1923, and 1924, the last two of which he led, and spent five years working for the Hudson Bay Company. He will tell schools that one trading port has grown to two hundred trading ports at the present day.
He will speak of Red Indians and canoes; of river ice and bales of fur; of the settlers that went out there, and of how the posts became the centre of villages, and the villages became towns. He will talk of Eskimos ; of the Indians' fear of the sea, and of the Eskimos' love of hunting in it; of seals and polar bears and walrus ; of snow houses and dog teams.

Miss MARGERY PERHAM : ' British Rule in Africa-The Machinery of Government'
THE TALK this evening will show the two schools of administration that have emerged in Africa as a result of the attempt to fit the framework of the twentieth century States over a patchwork of thousands of independent tribes, and sub-tribes, mostly in a primitive state of development.
Margery Perham had a distinguished career at Oxford, and has travelled not only in East Africa, which is so much in the limelight, but in West Africa which, by comparison, is so little known.
She will be remembered for two broadcasts she gave last year: in June, 'The Result of Abolition in West Africa' in the Slave Trade series, and in September, 'Bechuanaland'.
She is to sum up the present series on March 23, in a broadcast 'What of the Future ? '

Dame EDITH LYTTELTON , G.B.E.:
' Premonition and Prevision '
IN HER BROADCAST this evening Dame Edith Lyttelton will stress the power of the unconscious part of our mind. It has power not only over our bodies. It can gather information of events in the past, or at a distance, or even in the future.
She will mention the three kinds of mind within us: mind pictures, or visualisation within our mind; warnings and irresistible impulses. But the main matter of her talk this evening will be confined to the faculty of the mind, namely, the occasional power to know something which is going to happen in the future.
Dame Edith Lyttelton , G.B.E., is
President of the Society for Psychical Research, and the author of several books and plays.
