,g A serial reading from
' Moby Dick ' by Geoffrey Tandy
This reading takes up the story where Ishmael wakes up and finds himself alongside the harpooner, Queequeg, in bed. He watches the cannibal's extraordinary toilet, which culminates with his shaving himself with his harpoon, while his hat is already on his head.
Ishmael then wanders out into
New Bedford where he finds his way to a Whalemen's Chapel. Here Father Marple, himself an ex-whale-man gives his remarkable sermon in the language of the whaling-ship, based on the text ' And God had prepared a great fish to swallow up Jonah '.

' Ancient Greece : The Return of Odysseus'
E. V. RIEU
Today's broadcast in this series, which is bringing week by week stories of the ancient world to listeners, will be concerned with the return of Odysseus to his home under the clear skies of Ithaca, after years of wandering. Odysseus arrived without anyone knowing of it, and a dramatic scene will show how he was received by his wife Penelope, his son Telemachus, and his faithful old servants. Of his home country and his return Odysseus declared in the words of Homer: 'It is a rough land but a fit nurse for men, and I for one do not know of a sweeter sight for a man's eyes than his own country.'

Broadcast from Newmarket
The great attraction at the Newmarket Second October meeting is the Cambridgeshire, a handicap of 1 mile, 1 furlong, which has been run there for nearly a hundred years. In a fortnight's time, at the Newmarket Houghton meeting, the Cesarewitch, 2 miles, 2 furlongs, is to be run, completing the big autumn double. For the first time both races in the same year are to be broadcast.
Today's race, run over an unusual distance, too far for a sprinter, too short for a stayer, is one of the most difficult to win ; and, incidentally, it is one of the most difficult races for a commentator to describe, for the course is dead straight and the horses are coming towards him, as he stands watching in the Grand Stand. So Thomas Woodrooffe will have no enviable task.
Raymond Glendenning , who has described several big races in Ireland, including the Ulster Derby, will be situated about 2 furlongs from the start to describe the earlier stages of the race. Each commentator will have a professional race-reader to assist him. The scene, the runners and riders, and the parade will be described in a five minutes' broadcast before the race, which is timed for 3.15.
