' The Journey to the South '
The southward journey of the migrant birds began when the parent cuckoos left in July, and continued in August when the swifts departed. Today the journey has been completed by others of the migrants, the nightingales for instance. There are, however, many that are still on their journey, such as the chiffchaffs, which left a week or so ago, and the swallows and martins, which are gradually leaving. By mid-October practically all the summer migrants will have flown or be flying south, and the winter visitors who fly from the cold North will be arriving to spend the winter in the warmer climate of these islands.

2.30 British History
From the Eleventh to the Fifteenth Century ' Domesday Book'
In this, the first of the term's British History broadcasts, listeners will be taken back to the eleventh century England of William I and Domesday Book. Dramatic treatment of the subject will bring to the microphone typical villeins of the time, who, on the arrival of the Domesday Commissioners, will be heard discussing the conditions of the land and their lives in the light of the new census and property valuation. From the picturesque circumstances under which the Domesday Commissioners carried out their tasks the scene shifts to a modern version of the occasion, complete with census papers, income-tax, and discussions on land valuation.

Major Benton Fletcher
Hidden away in a typical Bloomsbury street is a house belonging to history, Old Devonshire House, bought by Major Benton Fletcher , artist, historian, and musician, who has presented this relic of the eighteenth century to the National Trust, to be preserved for ever.
In last week's Radio TIMES 'The
Broadcasters ' gave a sketch of the history of the house, which was built for the gay Lord Cavendish in 1667 and occupied by him until he was created Marquess of Hartington and Duke of Devonshire in 1694. From cellar to roof there is a secret shaft running up it, which once concealed Lord Russell, who made his escape through it and an underground tunnel. Panelling is there—punctured in one place by darts thrown by tenement occupants in the twentieth century.
In the old kitchen, which was used as a forge before Major Fletcher bought the house, the Devonshire Singers sing madrigals from time to time ; and in almost every room there is an eighteenth-century harpsichord, bought by Major Fletcher, to say nothing of virginals dating back to the time of Queen Elizabeth.
