A. J. A. SYMONS
This is the first broadcast in a new series designed to show that good talking-bright, witty, interesting talking that can hold an audience-is not among the lost arts. Worth-while conversation nourished with good letter-writing in the days before the telephone and motor cars turned life into a race. It may be rare today, but it is hoped to show that it is not extinct.
The supposition is that each talker has monopolised the conversation among a circle of friends, who are only too willing to listen. There will be no limitation of subject; the talker has carte blanche to interest, move, or amuse his friends.
A. J. A. Symons is a lover of rare books, a connoisseur of good food and wine. He is an author and journalist, and an authority upon the literature and bibliography of the eighteen-nineties. Last but not least, talking is one of his recreations.
Drama into Theatre
The play's the thing. But in this evening's talk-the opening talk in a Series dealing with varying aspects of the drama-John Fernald is to point out what an incomplete thing is a play that has not been brought to life out of cold print.
John Femald produces at the Embassy Theatre, London, and is the author of ' The Play Produced '-a Eort of treatise largely for amateurs on what must be added to a play before it is put on the stage.
This series, in fact, is very largely for amateurs, and subsequent talks are to be given by Martin Browne , a leading light of the amateur theatre, who is especially well-known for his production of Murder in the Cathedral in Canterbury Cathedral itself this last summer.

The story of the coup d'etat by which Napoleon overthrew the Directory and established the Consulate
' Brumaire' will be repeated in the Regional programme on Wednesday, 8.0
At the period of Anthony Ellis 's play, Napoleon was a young man of thirty. Even he, with his almost irrational optimism, could scarcely have visualised the power he was to gain in the vcars following that fateful day of the 18th Brumaire, 1799-the date in the queer revolutionary calendar when the Directory was crushed.
Drama and Napoleon were inseparable. Not long before, he had abandoned the ill-fated Egyptian campaign, evaded the English cruisers in the Mediterranean, and landed in France to answer the challenge of Siévès— ' seek a sword.' The play deals with the dramatic events that led to the establishment of the Consulate.
Anthony Ellis , who plays the part of Napoleon, will be remembered for his broadcast reconstruction of the trial of Lord Byng, in which he also played the name-part.
