' Ships and Seamen' a dramatic interlude written for broadcasting by HUGH Ross WILLIAMSON
' He is one of the greatest mariners that sails the seas both as a navigator and as a commander. His vessel is a galleon of about 400 tons and a perfect sailer. His crew he treats with affection and they treat him with respect..... He dines and sups to the music of viols ; he carries painters who paint for him pictures of the coast in its exact colours..... Each thing is so naturally depicted that no one who guides himself according to these paintings can possibly go astray.'-Fletcher : The World Encompass'd.
The above quotation is a sixteenth-century description of Sir Francis Drake , the greatest of the Elizabethan seamen. You will hear this afternoon something about him and the ships of his time as well as of the growth of England's trade and the increasing importance of her Navy until the days of Captain Cook.
Questions and Answers on today's moralities put by W. J. H. Sprott
Answered by Kenneth Goom
(A recording of the talk broadcast in the Northern programme on February 11, 1938)
This is one of a series of conversations in which Mr. Sprott will talk to men of strong convictions usually unorthodox. He is lecturer in philosophy at the University College of Nottingham. Many fathers and mothers will be amused that the subject to be discussed today is whether parents can be trusted to bring up their children.

@ Making the Most of Your
' Overcoming Disadvantages'
Making the most of your looks-your skin, your hair, your hands : this is a subject to appeal to women. And since Mary Embrey created a precedent by giving the first talk in a broadcast series on personal appearance in October of last year she has won an ever-increasing audience. It is good news to women that her talks are to go on. The latest to praise her is the discerning radio critic of The Listener, Mrs. Grace Wyndham Goldie.
