Ⓓ A feature programme by Jonquil Antony
'.. and ever goth the whele about...'
Production by Pascoe Thornton
Here is a novelty programme that is to discuss everything of interest concerning wheels. Its scope ranges from about the year 2800 B.C. down to the present day. Listeners will hear about wheels as diminutive as the cog-wheels in a watch and as big as the great wheel which was a feature of the Earl's Court Exhibition—especially when it stuck and a sailor climbed round it with refreshments for its stranded passengers. Carriage wheels, water wheels, Catherine wheels-anything and everything about wheels comes into this programme.
