' How our Habits make our Homes'
G. M. BOUMPHREY
A Dramatic Interlude written by MADGE PEMBERTON
' Among other" things is not to be forgotten the good peace that he (William 1) made in this land, so that a man who himself were aught might fare unhurt throughout his realm with his bosom full of gold.' 'He caused castles to be built and poor men to be sore and oppressed.'
The man who wrote this lived in the time of William the Conqueror and he tells us how peace was gained by the stern measures of the king. Today listeners will hear how these castles were built and whether they ensured the peace that the king was eager to establish.
The Lord ELTON
' She wanted to be a nurse. History got hold of her, offered her (at precisely the right moment) the Crimean War, and gave her a chance of being a nurse in a way more memorable than anybody else could have been, in a way that will never be forgotten '. So wrote ' O. 0.' in an article in THE RADIO Times last week. On October 19 and 20 Reginald Berkeley's play The Lady With a Lamp was broadcast, and this afternoon. Lord Elton is to talk of the life of the heroine, Florence Nightingale.

The Spanish novelist Alarcon's amusing story, ' The Three-Cornered Hat ', has already been turned into an opera (Hugo Wolf 's Der Corregidor) and a ballet (with music by Manuel de Falla ). Now Phillip Leaver has served it up entertainingly for the microphone.
The story deals with passionate, flirtatious happenings of the South a hundred years ago, where men were men and women wore flashing smiles, and tells the story of Carlos the miller and his wife, Frasquita, with whom His Honour Don Eugenio de Zuniga y Ponce de Leon, the Corregidor (or Governor) of the Province, falls head over heels in love.
The music is by Kenneth Leslie -
Smith, the composer of so many successful radio operettas-Love Needs a Waltz, Puritan Lullaby, Old Words to New Music, and others. This is the first time he has ventured into the Spanish idiom.
' The Three-Cornered Hat' will be broadcast again tomorrow at 8.45 in the Regional programme
