If listeners will turn to the map on page 9 of the pamphlet dealing with this course, they will see Siam making a salient into French Indo-China and remember that the first talk this term was devoted to Siam. The next two talks were given on Malaya, which they will see at the foot of the map, and this week and next they are to hear two talks on French Indo-China, a very large and important part of the French Colonial Empire, almost twice the size of France.
The broadcast, both today and next week, will begin with the setting of the scene by Mr. Ernest Young , and then listeners will hear the views of a Breton who spent two years in French Indo-China, read by his fellowcountryman, M. Stephan. If they look at the map on page 18 of the pamphlet they will see what might well be the photograph of a boulevard in, a suburb of Paris. French Indo-China in fact is so much France overseas that a Frenchman was obviously required to describe it.

2.5 Discovering England
' Yorkshire—4, The North Riding'
In this comprehensive series on Yorkshire the whole county, the City of York, the East Riding and the coast have already been discussed; and today it is the turn of the North Riding -the moors and the dales. Mr. Samuel Gott will describe how the dales were formed ; the heavy rainfall ; the water-falls called ' forces ' ; the lead mines worked by the Romans. Then he will go on to discuss the moorlands-the peat and its uses ; a sheep farm ; the monks who bred horses and made cheese.
Life in winter; old customs and characters ; Fountains Abbey and historic Richmond all come into this interesting talk.
4—' Australasia, the New World in the South'
ElLEEN POWER, Professor of Economic History in the University of London
Last week Professor Eileen Power talked about the opening up of Africa ; today she is to talk about the opening up of Australasia, the New World in the south. She will discuss Australasia -that is to say Australia and New Zealand-before the coming of the Europeans ; the arrival there of both the Dutch and the British in the seventeenth century; the first settlements. Her talk will cover ' transportation ', the squatters, the gradual exploration of the whole Continent. And finally John Macarthur and the merino sheep, the Gold Rush, and those most important things to Australasia and the world--cold storage and Canterbury lamb.

On April 23 Mr. W. McG. Eagar opened this series with a talk showing the extent to which Voluntary Social Service has grown in this country. The following week Mr. Blakiston sketched the historical background ; then Dr. H. A. Mess went on to explain the motives behind this great cause. Last week Mr. Eagar took up the threads again and described the organisation, and today he is to wind up the series.
He will try to show how the Voluntary Social Service retains both its vitality and the interest of the public, with its changing needs. He will show how voluntary and official action interlock ; the problems raised ; the change in outlook from condescension to co-operation. How much co-ordination is there ? Is more necessary or desirable ? What would be the effect of more public control ?
