Sir Ian MacAlister
When Edward Thomas was killed in France in 1917 English literature was the poorer by a writer who, in his blending of sensitiveness with a keen critical ability, occupied an almost unique place in his craft.
It was Edward Thomas's tragedy that his work was little known during his lifetime. His wife, Helen Thomas, has told this story in two books 'As It Was' and 'World Without End'.
Critic, nature writer, and biographer, Thomas only turned to poetry during the war. The first of his volumes of verse was published in 1917, and the second posthumously in 1918. Sir Ian MacAlister, who will give his reminiscences this evening, was a personal friend of Thomas's from Oxford days onwards.

A Play compered from the studio by Thomas Woodrooffe
Here is an outside broadcast on the grand scale, a broadcast in which, from microphones placed all over the town, listeners will be brought an impression of one London night at its gayest and brightest.
Guided by various commentators, listeners will be taken to a pantomime, to a fun fair, to ap East End boxing hall, and a West End theatre. They will find themselves picking a precarious way among the skaters at a big rink, dancing, if they feel inclined, to the music of a dance band at a big &Wfft End hotel, and finishing up among the motley crowd at the biggest fancy dress ball of the year.
Among the commentators contributing to the broadcast will be Stewart MacPhers ,oh at the skating rink, John 51) at the fun fair,
Dan TitchenefSf the East End boxing hall, and the one and only
Charlie Garner at the big fancy dress ball.
