2.5 Stories from World History
' The New World to the West '—1
' White Men and Indians '
A Dramatic Interlude written by Hugh Ross Williamson
The stories from world history to be heard this term belong to the last five hundred years, and will show listeners how the old ways of the Middle Ages have been changed, sometimes very gradually, sometimes very quickly, into the new ways of our modern world. Today listeners will hear how the great continent of America was discovered by white men, and about the red-skinned people who were found living there.
Then they will hear about the Aztecs and their great king Montezuma, and what happened when the Spaniards visited them in 1519. 2.25 Interlude

This time of the year is very suitable for considering the subjects of the first thre lessons in this the last term of the present course in biology, for listeners are to hear how each generation of living things begins and becomes adult. Today Dr. Peacock will discuss the pollination of flowers. Without pollination seed cannot set and give rise to the next generation. The ' how ' and 'why ' of this process is the subject of this lesson.

The Forestry Commission and the Future
A discussion between Sir Roy Robinson , Patrick Abercrombie , and J. W. C. Agate
In the final broadcast in this series, Sir Roy Robinson , its Chairman, will state the case of the Forestry Commission, and his critics will be two persons who are sceptical of the Government's policy from the aesthetic point of view and the trade point of view respectively. They will discuss the problem of State forests of conifers, which are neither indigenous nor natural to the English landscape, the question of afforestation in such districts as the lakes, and the general problem of the future shortage of hardwood timber.
