D Conquest of Disease '
AMABEL WILLIAMS ELLIS
Were the ' good old days ' quite so good as they sound ? Certainly not for the people who lived in crowded, unhealthy streets where typhoid and typhus killed them by the hundred, nor even for patients in hospitals where no anæsthetics were used and nursing was in the hands of unskilled and frequently dirty women.
How did things change ? When and how were anaesthetics discovered, antiseptics introduced, and skilled nurses first trained in hospitals ? Can you name any famous people to whom, in this connection, the world owes a lasting debt ?
The broadcast is to take a novel form, which should greatly add to the interest of listeners.

' Of all living authors-now that Tolstoy is gone-I would least dispense with W. H. Hudson ', wrote Galsworthy on one occasion. And to those who love his books, Hudson is indispensable. He stands beside Richard Jefferies in the very first rank of English nature-writers.
But, unlike Jefferies, he was not a purely English nature-writer. He was born in Argentina (in 1841) and spent the first tweny-nine years of his life there. And South America was the subject of both his first book, ' The Purple Land ', and his most popular book, ' Green Mansions '.
Of his prose style another master,
Joseph Conrad , once said: ' Hudson writes as the grass grows. The good God makes it be there. And that is all there is to it.'
