' The Fen District-I, The Fenlands '
HARRY GODWIN , Ph.D
You have heard in this series about the downland of Wiltshire, and about the valleys and mountains of the Lake District. Today you are to hear the first of four talks about the Holland of Britain.
A country that was once wide marsh-land but which has now been drained and cultivated. Mr. Harry Godwin is to take you today for a walk through the peat fens. You will see the landscape, and note its characteristics. Flat. No hedges, banks, nor trees; no hills, nor woods.
He will tell you about the ditches that have been dug and the trees that have been planted ; about the soil and the fields, the roads and the rivers. You will hear how the Fenland people cope with the problem of too much water; and what peat is and tht use they make of it. You will heai about silt and sedge-crops, and in this first talk of Mr. Godwin's get a very good idea of the Fens.

Sir GILES-GILBERT SCOTT , R.A.
The Guildhall, London
The guest of honour tonight will be H.R.H. the Prince of Wales, and about a thousand guests will sit down to the banquet. When Sir Giles Gilbert Scott 's speech is relayed, listeners will hear one of the most distinguished of living architects.
He is famous for having won the Liverpool Cathedral Competition at the age of twenty-two, and he has been building the cathedra! ever since. It is doubtful if it will be completed in his lifetime. He also designed the building which houses the Battersea Power Plant and the new Waterloo Bridge. He has just completed the new buildings in Clare College, Cambridge, and the Cambridge University Library, which was opened last month by H.M. the King.
