' Cornwall Calling ' (Second Series)-No. i, ' Schools and School Children of Olden Days', by A. K. HAMILTON
JENKIN this AFTERNOON children are to hear the first talk of a series round a county that is different from any other in England. Cornish is no longer spoken, but you will hear Cornish words, eat saffron cakes as yellow as dandelions, cross stone stiles, and see nets over the haystacks instead of thatch, and slates on the walls as well as on the roofs of houses, if you go to Cornwall.
Mist and sea-winds blow over the land, for it is like a foot stuck into the sea. Places in the south are as soft as Devon, but a full-grown oak in the north may be no taller than a 'amp-post. A land of legend. Did not the mother of King Arthur come from Tintagel, and a Cornish carpenter make the Round Table ? Stone circles, sixth century crosses, fairies—the little people ' whom A. K. Hamilton Jenkin told you about not so long ago. Some of you will remember how he met an old Cornish woman who had seen them dancing in little caps, and those other enchanting talks of his about smugglers.
His talk today is to be about schools and school-children in olden days; and on other afternoons he is to tell you about pack horses and coaches, about the tin mines, and about Maytime customs.

A Drama by Philip Wade
Produced by Gordon Gildard
Cast (in order of their speaking):
The action passes in and around Newby Hall
PHILIP WADE, actor and playwright, has specialised in 'character' parts from Fluellen in Henry V to Tweedle-dum in Through the Looking-Glass. His connection with broadcasting has also inspired him to write several plays and sketches specially for the microphone, of which Family Tree is the most notable. In fact, when this play was first produced in 1932 it was hailed as 'the play of the year'.
Family Tree is the story of a county family and its servants. 'When this red earth', says Aunt Agatha, 'has stained your hands for over a thousand years your life becomes more than a habit - it becomes a part of the soil itself.'
The elder daughter elopes with the estate agent, and is consequently ostracised by the family. The fortunes of the family decline. But there is a happy ending. The characterisation is finely drawn, and the treatment (with effects) is novel.
Family Tree was broadcast in the Regional programme last night.
