at the Organ of the Paramount Theatre,
Henry Croudson , who broadcasts from the organ of the Paramount Cinema.
Manchester, today, is a Leeds man, and held two cinema organ appointments in that city before crossing the Pennines some months ago. Like so many of his contemporaries, he started his musical career as a church organist, learning to play at St. Chad's, Leeds, and afterwards becoming organist at the oldest church in the city, St. John s. He continued to hold the latter appointment after he had started cinema work, and, in fact, relinquished it only two years ago.
Not only an organist, Henry Croudson is also a pianist of note-he once broadcast a piano recital from the old Leeds Station-and not long ago for a wager he started an accordion band of unemployed men, which proved a great success in Yorkshire.

2.5 Discovering England: Yorkshire: 3: 'The East Riding and the Yorkshire Coast'
W. L. Andrews
The speaker this afternoon, W.L. Andrews, has helped to prepare this series of talks on Yorkshire. The Editor of the Leeds Mercury is a well-known Northern broadcaster. In a recent article in The Radio Times he described himself as 'an enthusiastic native, a great part of whose life has been spent in writing about Yorkshire events
Probably less is known outside Yorkshire of the East Riding than of the more assertive West Riding, but Hull, Beverley, and Great Driffield have in their varying way a character all their own. And every inch of the famous stretch of coastline from Tees to Humber, high and rugged in the north, flat and sandy in the south, is eloquent of beauty and alive with history.'
2.30 World History: 3: 'The Opening of Africa'
Eileen Power, Professor of Economic History in the University of London
This afternoon Professor Eileen Power will tell the story of Africa in modern times. Europeans travelled thousands of miles to trade and settle, and in this broadcast listeners will hear particularly about the Dutch and British who settled in the south. Although Europeans made trading stations all down the west coast-an important sideline of theirs was the slave trade-they never attempted an exploration of the interior. In the nineteenth century, however, as Professor Power will point out, David Livingstone and other great travellers went far inland to places where no white man had been before. The aftermath of the work of these pioneers was the scramble amongst the great Powers of Europe to divide Africa into empires for themselves.

' The Organisation of Voluntary
W. McG. EAGAR
Voluntary services have grown by individual initiative, and particularly by voluntary donations. The money is raised in various ways, as W. McG. Eagar will explain this evening. In this talk he will stress the importance of social service trust funds, and flag days and lotteries.
Discussion Groups will find much to debate in what the speaker has to say.
For instance, can a better way be found of financing the voluntary social services than the organised begging to which most of them are driven for the whole or part of their income ? Are flag days a public nuisance, or are they really a good way of collecting a multitude of small donations ?
And is the refusal of charity to support proposals of legalising charities sound ?
Has social service for unemployment appreciably helped to maintain morale and physique in the Special Areas ?
And finally, could the vast problem of unemployment be tackled by official agencies ?
