From page 72 of' When Two or Three '
This morning, Mr. Charles Cook , who is seventy years of age and a country labourer, is to tell listeners some of the hardships and humours of his early days. A bed of sacking and rope, a meal off a knob of bread and a knob of dripping. Sixpence a week for minding the cows. Promotion to three and sixpence for driving three horses, and three and a half miles to walk to his job and back. Those were the days. And he didn't keep anything of his three and sixpence either, but had to hand over the lot to his parents. But a farthing was returned to him to be spent on sweets. ... But Mr. Cook has no grudge against life, though he once worked from three in the morning until seven at night to pay off his mother's debt to the baker.

JACK McLAREN : 'I take to the Wilds '
In this talk of real and really thrilling first-hand adventure, Mr. Jack McLaren will describe how he was once shipwrecked on a Cannibal beach in New Guinea, and how, though he might have been killed the first time, he returned to the same spot to trade copra with the natives.
He will tell of his narrow escape from a blanket fish in Torres Strait; of his experiences as a recruiter of native labourers in the wildest parts of the Solomon Islands ; of an adventure in West Papua ; and finally of the strange way in which he took up writing. Among other exciting books from his pen are ' Blood on the Deck' and ' My Crowded Solitude.'

(soprano) Othello' is one of three overtures originally intended as movements of a symphony suggesting the ideas of childhood, youth, and manhood. Othello shows us manhood and the working of love in life. We may take it that the composer did not set out to depict Shakespeare's tragedy in symphonic poem fashion, but that he is concerned more generally with its motive of passionate love.
