A recorded synopsis of a paper read to The Physical Society in London earlier in the day by Sir Ambrose Fleming, F.R.S.
When the Physical Society was founded sixty-four years ago it received its first address from a young scientist by the name of Fleming.
This evening Sir Ambrose Fleming, inventor of the thermionic valve and one of the pioneers of radio, will once more address that body. Sir Alan Ferguson, President of the Physical Society, and well-known broadcaster, will introduce Sir Ambrose, who will address the members on scientists of the 'seventies and scientists of today.
The speech will travel by post-office line to Broadcasting House, where it will be electrically recorded. The Recorded Programmes Department will then have the difficult task of cutting a sixty-minute speech to fifteen minutes, and making a consecutive whole of it.
