Tracing History Backwards—4a ' Bonds of Empire '
What exactly is the British Empire today ? This is a difficult question, but this afternoon Stephen King-Hall will try to answer it. He will talk of the various members of what His Majesty the King referred to in Jubilee Week as ' this great family '—the self-governing Dominions, Crown colonies, protectorates, and mandated territories which are, amongst other things, bound together by common traditions r.nd sentiments.

7-' Birds of Prey; Kestrels and Owls '
C. C. GADDUM
This afternoon Mr. C. C. Gaddum is to tell listeners exactly what a bird of prey is. He will point out the necessity for protecting owls and kestrels, and stress the harm that is done bv shooting them through ignorance. He will show the good they do by destroying rats and mice and other vermin.
Two hawks are hunting, one a kestrel, the other a sparrow hawk. Is it possible to tell which is which ? Do they differ in the way they observe, or in the way they attack? Again, how is a barn owl different from a tawny owl ? And which-if either—is called the white owl, and why ? Mr. Gaddum will give short accounts of these birds of prey, and teachers will find it helpful to have either specimens or illustrations of the kestrel, barn owl, sparrow hawk and tawny owl to show their class.

The members of the Rapaport 'Cello Quartet were all students together at the Royal Academy of Music, and studied under Douglas Cameron. The leader of the Quartet is Peter Beavan, who is also leader of the Boyd Neel String Orchestra. This is their first public appearance, though the members have played together since their R.A.M. days.
They are playing a new work by York Bowen and one by William Alwyn, based on Folk Songs, that has been specially written for them. Several well-known composers have promised to write works for this combination. It is obvious that a quartet of 'cellos demands very special treatment, and the combination has rich possibilities.

A Radio Report
Being a condensation of the verbatim speeches of the Trial, with a few cuttings from the contemporary Press by John Gough (From Edinburgh)
It is more than three-quarters of a century since Madeleine Smith was tried on a charge of poisoning her lover. Yet the verdict is still a favourite subject for criminological discussion. The broadcast reconstruction of the trial is necessarily shorter than the original verbatim records-shorter even than the original radio version which was broadcast to Scottish listeners last April and lasted over two hours, but the essential portions of the Court speeches and procedure have been faithfully retained as far as possible.
It will be noticed that Madeleine's name is spelt 'Madeline' in the press-cutting reproduced on this page, but John Gough is satisfied that she invariably spelt her name with the second 'e', and he has seen the Court papers which include her own handwriting.
('The Trial of Madeleine Smith' was broadcast in the Regional programme last night)

A Psycho-analytical Approach to Social
5— Changing the World
A Revaluation of Politics
By a Medical Psychologist
In this series many illustrations have been given of the force of man's unconscious mind ; and it has been shown how it is constantly the cause of actions that the conscious mind attributes to something quite different. In the lives of individuals the true sequence of cause and effect can often be traced ; in the life of a community the problem is more complicated. Political life, however-the subject of this talk-offers a field of speculative research to everyone.
This talk will suggest interesting angles from which current news can be viewed.
