The Falkland Islands, Tierra del
Fuego, and the Scotia Arc
H. F. P. HERDMAN
Between 1932 and 1935 Mr Herd man was on Discovery II, the famous research ship which is engaged in finding out all about whales ; and he is going to tell you of one of her voyages when he was on board, a voyage from Monte Video to the Falkland Islands and through the Magellan Straits to the Pacific and into the Scotia Sea. Discovery II, when he was in her, often called at Magellan to get fresh water and stores, and he will speak of some of his adventures. What makes this talk all the more interesting is that Mr. Clowes, a colleague of his, gave a broadcast a fortnight ago on the reason for the voyages of Discovery II, when he brought to the microphone' the chief officer and a scientist who had just returned from her fourth voyage. She got back from the Antarctic at the end of May.

'Work of all sorts'
A dramatic interlude written for broadcasting by HUGH CHESTERMAN
In the fourteenth century, poor people, according to Piers Plowman , lived for a considerable part of the year on such food as green cheeses, curds, cream, havercake or oatcake, beans and bran loaves, parsley, cabbages, and leeks, but bacon was never on their tables. Rich people, on the other hand, had a great variety of dishes, as you will hear in the part of the broadcast that describes a banquet in the time of Elizabeth. You will hear, too, how some of the everyday things like sugar, tea, and potatoes have been added to our diet ; and how in the last hundred years different inventions have given us an enormous variety of preserved foods. Finally you will hear how carefully food is examined nowadays to see that it is of good quality.

' The Impact of America '
Notwithstanding all the talks that have been given in this series, there remains the American language which is influencing ours in all sorts of ways daily ; and few could be more happily chosen to discuss it than that popular broadcaster, Alistair Cooke. It will be remembered that after leaving Cambridge he was for two years in America doing research work and spending his vacations travelling round the States. He returned to England to give broadcast talks on the cinema, and he gave them for the record period of three years, in addition to arranging such popular programmes as ' American Half-Hours', 'The American Negro', and an anthology of hobo songs. He is now giving regular broadcasts in America, and tonight's talk winding up this series will be broadcast from there.
