2.5 Travel Talk
' The Gold Coast'
Denis Vincent will point out that the Gold Coast includes Gold Coast Colony, Ashanti to the north of it, and the Northern Territories further north still. He is to describe how you will get ashore when your liner anchors outside Accra, the capital of the Colony.
' Mammy-chairs ' and surf boats, great heat, and after an exciting trip at last you are on land. You will hear about tse-tse flies ; go by car to Sekondi ; then up-country by train which makes a terrific clatter for reasons Denis Vincent will explain. Among the things you will hear about are the cocoa farms that are everywhere, gold mines, mahogany in the forests, and a typical Gold Coast village.

A Story from Chaucer
Louis Pasteur has been described as the greatest Frenchman of all time. His victory over rabies-the dreaded hydrophobia-won him international fame, and has been vividly described in Paul de Kruif 's book, ' Microbe Hunters '. Many listeners may have read it, or one or other of the lives of Pasteur on the market. Certainly many will have seen the Pasteur film.
The BBC Midland Orchestra
Leader, Alfred Cave
Conducted by Leslie Heward The present-day music of Finland is almost a family affair. The three composers of whom listeners would most readily think as representing the country-Sibelius, Jarnefelt, and Palmgren-are all related one to the other by marriage. Palmgren, known first as a brilliant pianist, returned to his own country after some years of study abroad, and was soon appointed Director of the Finnish Students' Choral Society. Other more important appointments followed, but in 1912 he gave them all up to devote himself entirely to the twofold career of pianist and composer. He has toured Europe extensively, sometimes in company with his wife, who is a distinguished singer. In 1923 he went to Rochester, U.S.A., as Professor of Composition in the Eastman School.

(First broadcast performance) William Wallace's symphonic poem
' Sister Helen' is the third of six symphonic poems (the best known is No. 6, ' Villon ') written between the years 1892 and 1909. It received its first performance at the Crystal Palace in 1899, and it has not been performed in England since 1904, when it was conducted by the composer at Harrogate Kursaal. The poem by D. G. Rossetti deals with a mediaeval superstition according to which sickness and death can be brought by force of will to the person on whom one would be revenged. Sister Helen has been deserted by her lover, so, to smite him with a deathly sickness, she melts his waxen image over the fire. This music was originally written to accompany a stage representation of this ballad, and took the form of a duologue accompanied by music with a recurring refrain to be sung by a contralto behind the scenes. As it turned out, the stage performance never took place, but in order that the material should not be wasted, the composer turned it into a symphonic poem.

The Matabele Rebellion, 1896
Listeners may remember that Frank Worthington gave the first talk in the first series of 'I Was There' with a vivid account of his experiences at the time of the Johannesburg rising and the Jameson Raid. Today he is to tell the story of what happened to him afterwards. He had to exist as best he could and got a job as ostler in a stable in Johannesburg. One day he recognised the horse he had ridden in the Rising. He will describe how he took it and got away across the frontier in time to take part in the Matabele War.
