1-' The Personal Answer'
The Rev. Donald 0. Soper, Ph.D. This is the first of a group of three talks In which Dr. Soper will discuss practical applications of the Christian ethic to everyday life. There can be few churchmen living more In touch with the man-in-the-street than this afternoon's speaker. For many years he has been a familiar Wednesday-noonday figure on Tower Hill, where he addresses audiences drawn from every type of person.
In previous broadcasts Dr. Soper has spoken on the abstract truth of Christianity, but now he will survey in lucid, simple style the practical side of applied Christianity as he has learned it from his experience.

The Rev. Canon Harold Anson, Master of the Temple
Speaking from the belief that the attitude of a period towards the Church is never better expressed than through the pages of its novelists, Canon Anson will this afternoon give the first of four broadcasts illustrating this belief so far as the nineteenth century is concerned. The novelists he has chosen are Jane Austen, J.H. Shorthouse, Anthony Trollope, and George Eliot, all of whom viewed the Church in greatly different perspective, and whose widely contrasting views should prove of great interest.
Canon Anson has done a great deal of broadcasting, and will perhaps be best remembered for the series of talks he gave just two years ago under the title 'Fifty Years of Religious Experience.' These talks he has since made the foundation of his autobiography.

In previous instalments you have heard how Rudolf Rassendyll , visiting Ruritania for the coronation of the King, Rudolf V, discovered that he was that monarch's double. You heard how Rassendyll dined with the King and his two equerries in a forest hunting-lodge, and how the King drank a drugged bottle of wine sent to him by his half-brother, Duke Michael. Rudolf was persuaded to impersonate the King at the coronation, but on returning to the hunting-lodge on the night after the ceremony he discovered that the King had vanished.
In today's instalment you will learn how he deals with this unexpected emergency.

An appeal on behalf of THE FIRS HOME, BOURNEMOUTH by HAROLD WILLIAMS
Firs Home stands out as an instance of the effective warfare against the spread of tuberculosis. While the cost of maintaining this organisation becomes higher, the executive administration continues to be voluntary. The management estimate that three thousand pounds will enable them to put the staffing and internal and external amenities into a healthy and sound state to receive comfortably and effectively a stream of people from all parts of the country.
Mr. Harold Williams , who makes this appeal, is the well-known singer.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to Harold Williams , Esq., [address removed].

A Chorus of Persian Elders
Chorus directed by Elsie Fogerty
The play was first acted in the year 472 B.C., eight years after the Battle of Salamis
Production by Barbara Burnham
Professor Gilbert Murray , Britain's most distinguished Greek scholar, will be in the studio tonight to introduce the radio version of his new translation of Æschylus's The Persians. Gilbert Murray , who was Regius Professor of Greek at Oxford University from 1908 to 1936, probably knows more about Greek drama than any man living, and brings to the translation of these plays not only a scholarly mind but a gift for making them extremely actable.
The Persians, which is the first in a new series of ' Great Plays' was first produced eight years after the Battle of Salamis in which the Persian fleet of Xerxes was defeated by that of the Greek allies. The play deals with this terrible disaster to the Persians in general and to King Xerxes in particular.
