Towards the end of October, 1935, the present King, as Prince of Wales, made a striking appeal for more care on the roads, and for a more intensive safety campaign. In one way or another, he has found an echo almost every day since.
The idea behind this talk is to tell the story of new devices for safety on the road, and to compare other nations' efforts, particularly those of America, to solve a world problem.
Kenneth Adam, who was on the staff of the BBC before joining The Star, is to try and paint a picture of the change in appearance in roads, due to modern traffic needs, and he will discuss further changes that are likely.

How some plant diseases are investigated
This talk explains the investigations constantly being made by scientists into plant diseases given by mysterious things called viruses (not necessarily living organisms), so small that no pore of a filter can hold them back, and the lens of no microscope has yet been made that can magnify them enough to show them to the naked eye.
Dr Kenneth Smith, who works at the Potato Virus Research Station, School of Agriculture, Cambridge, will describe how certain viruses are spread about by the sap of infected plants, others by carriers such as green-fly, others through the sludge in the bottom of tanks, others by contact with the human hand.
What a virus is, is not yet known.
It is being combated - for instance, by the English grower who buys his potato seed in Scotland where the virus is scarcer. The chemist, the physicist, the botanist, and the entomologist are all co-operating in the study of viruses and virus diseases in the interests of us all.
