JOAN WOOLLCOMBE : ' To see a Children's Court at work in Paris '
THIS MORNING'S TALK, like the one last Monday, shows yet another out-of-the-ordinary reason for going abroad. Joan Woollcombe is a ' feature writer ', and, as she says, it is part of her business to lift the lid off unusual brews. She soon found that her passion for finding out how things work took her by air over a great deaf* of Europe-seeing things and talking to people ; chiefly seeing things not so easily seen by the majority of us, and writing about them in some fifty papers.
The ' behind the scenes ' of the Law when it deals with child offenders is not at all easy to see in any country unless the powers that be are persuaded you will not let them down by sensation-mongering. Mrs. Woollcombe visited both Holland and France with extreme rapidity by air recently, especially for these two broadcasts, her object being to describe just exactly what does go on behind the closed doors of the Children's Courts abroad.
Last Monday she dealt with Amsterdam ; this morning she will deal with Paris.
