2.5 Round the Countryside
' Brock the Badger '
C. C. Gaddum
This afternoon C. C. Gaddum is to tell his listeners something about a creature that most people know by name but have very rarely seen-the badger, often nicknamed by country people ' Brock '. He is a nocturnal animal, very shy and retiring, only coming out at dusk in search of food. Mr. Gaddum will talk about his own personal experiences with a badger family, which he discovered and watched during a whole summer in a wood near his home.
Teachers might with advantage have an illustration of a badger to show their classes.

' Polar Discovery'
Sir Hubert Wilkins
A year ago today Lincoln Ellsworth and Hollick-Kenyon arrived in Melbourne in the Discovery II, which had taken them off the Ice Edge after their famous flight across the Antarctic continent.
Sir Hubert Wilkins , who was in command of the Wyatt Earp , the expedition's base ship at the time, will discuss the general question of polar exploration. What have recent expeditions contributed to our knowledge of the Poles ? What still remains to be done ? No one is better qualified by practical experience to answer these questions than Sir Hubert, who was with Stefannsson in the Arctic and with Shackleton in the Antarctic, and who has himself led many notable expeditions.
