' Mrs. Percy Wyndham at
Previous talks in this series have dealt with such men of action as Sir Redvers Buller and T. E. Lawrence.
In this talk listeners will hear of a remarkable woman who created perhaps the most famous of all the great Victorian country houses. Clouds House in Wiltshire was the masterpiece of Philip Webb , who designed it in 1885. Under Mrs. Wyndham it was the centre of Victorian society, artistic and political. Burne-Jones, William Morris , Arthur Balfour , and Lord Curzon were some of those who were entertained there.
Edith Olivier has lived close to
Clouds all herjife and will describe this bygone world from her own memories.

2—' Endeavours in the Past'
Raymond E. Priestley , D.Sc.
Dr. Priestley, who is now Vice-Chancellor and Principal of Birmingham University, was a member of two expeditions to the Antarctic-Shackleton's in the Nimrod in 1907-9, and Scott's famous one of 1910-13, in which he was one of the Northern party. His connection with recent exploration in the North is a very real one, because it was largely due to his enthusiasm and a set of lectures he was giving in Cambridge after the war that Britain's younger generation of explorers became inspired to travel there.
In tonight's talk Dr. Priestley is going to look at Northern exploration in the past, and show how motives and methods have changed with the years in the long endeavour to conquer and harness the region.
