A dramatic interlude written for broadcasting by HUGH Ross WILLIAMSON
'... The sole privilege of writing, printing, and publishing all narratives, advertisements, mercuries, intelligencers, diurnals, and other books of public intelligence was conferred by Royal grant on a ' surveyor of the Press ' in 1663. Fifty years later a writer was pointing out : ' There are published weekly about 44,000. newspapers, vis. Daily Courant, London Post, English Post, London Gazette, Postman, Postboy, Flying Post, Review and Observer.' In 1792 it was written in the Memoirs of the Life of James Lack ington : ' ... If there is anything in the newspapers of consequence, that draws many to the coffee-house, where they chat away the evenings.' , This afternoon you are going to hear something about the beginning of newspapers, how they grew and the sort of news they gave.

H. Pearl Adam
Readers of the Radio TIMES particularly will look forward to hearing a talk by that well-known journalist and writer on subjects of interest to women, Pearl Adam , whose name must be very familiar to them through her regular contributions to the Home Pages.
The subject for this broadcast talk came to her accidentally. She went to see over a friend's new house and noticed that all kinds of things were wrong. So it occurred to her that possibly many things were wrong in her own home. She came back and found plenty of them. Then it seemed probable to her that most people grow so used to the things around them that they cease to notice them. Hence this talk.
