From page 57 of ' When Two or Three'
This morning listeners are to hear a talk by a speaker who has just returned from the Balkans. Lady Muir is the wife of Sir Alexander Kay Muir and daughter of M. Standoff , who was Bulgarian Minister to the Court of St. James just after the war.
Being the daughter of a diplomat, she has been all over the world. Listeners will remember her series of talks ' Through Three Continents ', which were so popular about a year ago.

Iolanthe was the seventh of the Savoy series of operas in order of production, and followed immediately upon the successful run of Patience, of which over 400 performances had been given. Indeed, all the Gilbert and Sullivan operas had phenomenally long runs, Iolanthe, for example, holding the Savoy stage for more than a year. Sullivan by this time was already a very popular public figure. He had been tor three years Director of the newly-founded Royal College of Music, he had recently succeeded Costa as conductor of Leeds Festival, and within a few months from the beginning of the Iolanthe run he was to be knighted.
