A Guessing Game
Presented by Leslie Stokes
A week or two ago Leslie Stokes went to the London Zoo to try to persuade, with the help of David Seth-Smith and the keepers, as many animals as possible to be talkative. The idea was to record various noises to be broadcast this afternoon in this diverting guessing game.
Some of the more unusual noises they attempted to record-and it would spoil the fun of the game to say whether they succeeded or not -were the rare bellow of George the alligator, the 'Cup-Final' rattle of a new batch of rattlesnakes, and the half-bark of a hippopotamus, seldom heard.
The roar of a lion most listeners know ; the chattering of gibbons is less distinctive. - Can you guess the animal from the noise it makes ?

Montague Brearley was brought up in Australia, but went to study in Germany in 1913. When war broke out he narrowly escaped being interned, but got safely back to Australia and shortly afterwards joined the Australian forces and went out to Egypt. In 1922 he again went to Germany to study, and two years later gave his first recital and broadcast in London; He continued to broadcast as a soloist until 1931 when he joined the BBC Theatre Orchestra, of which in the following year he was appointed leader.
Last year Montague Brearley gave up his position with the BBC and formed his own orchestra which consists of fifteen players. During August he and his orchestra will deputise for the Empire Orchestra which will be on holiday, and will broadcast twelve concerts to the Empire during that period.
