2.5 Travel Talk
The British Empire
' Nyasaland '
The Rev. T. CULLEN YOUNG
T. Cullen Young first went to Nyasaland thirty-two years ago when the only way in was by the Zambesi River, and a lonely pole, bobbing about in a grey sea, was all that marked the river-mouths. Day after day he went up in a canoe, paddled along by singing Africans. Hippopotamuses, crocodiles, little native villages; sometimes a view of an elephant, or antelope, or lion.
Listeners will hear about that, and about the way into Nyasaland as it is today-by train, over the great Zambesi Bridge, built two years ago, from Beira into the heart of Nyasaland in a day and a night.

Adventures of a Physiologist
J. B. S. HALDANE , F.R.S.,
Professor of Genetics in the University of London
When the well-known physiologist, Professor Haldane, was a boy, he went down a mine with his father to get samples of really bad air. They crawled to a place where the safety lamp filled with a blue flame and went out with a pop. To demonstrate the effects of breathing fire-damp he was told by his father to stand up and recite ' Friends, Romans, countrymen '. Long before he had finished he collapsed on to the floor, where he quickly came round. In this way he learnt that fire-damp is lighter than air, and that, when fire-damp is present, the air on the floor is not dangerous.
In his talk today he is to deal with his father's adventures in the cause of humanity-adventures in which he shared. He is still taking risks for the same great cause, and only recently he collapsed in Madrid while testing gas masks to protect the civilian population in case of attack.

In the first month of the new Charter of the BBC we look back to the birth of the original British Broadcasting Company - fourteen years ago. The start of British broadcasting at Marconi House in London, at Birmingham, and at Manchester, will be recalled in tonight's 'Scrapbook for 1922'.
This was the year when the wartime Coalition Government came to an end, a political sensation symptomatic of the return from wartime conditions. It was the year of Princess Mary's wedding, of the Geddes 'Axe', of The Cabaret Girl and A to Z, of Northcliffe - a great personality

Tonight listeners are to hear one of our own countrymen speaking from London of his own life and work, and then they will hear, from Vienna, an Austrian in a similar calling speak of his life and work over there. Each will give a plain, straightforward account of himself -his age and the length of time he has been at his job. He will say if he like it, if he likes it well enough to put his children into it, how he spends his leisure hours, and so forth.
This will be the third broadcast in this series, which has been devised by Moray McLaren , now on the Continent. Paris and Rome have already been represented ; the turns of Warsaw, Berlin, and Copenhagen are to come. The idea is to show that so far as jobs and human types are concerned, most European countries are very much alike.
