★ 'The Great Exhibition of 1851' ELEANOR GRAHAM
The objects of the Great International Exhibition of 1851 were, in the words of the Prince Consort ' the promotion of all branches of human industry and the strengthening of the bonds of peace and friendship among the nations of the earth ', -an aim that may be taken to apply to all these great occasions.
In the course of the talk the Great
Exhibition will be compared with the New York World's Fair of today, and the broadcast will be illustrated by an imaginary commentary on the opening of the Exhibition, extracts from the speeches of Queen Victoria, the Prince Consort, and the Archbishop of Canterbury, and a dialogue between two workmen at the Exhibition's close.

A Study of Unity in Diversity by William Rappard , Adolf Keller , Paul Ganz , and Sir Alfred Zimmern
1—' The Political Tradition '
Director of the Graduate Institute of International Studies
This is the first of a group of four talks all coming from Switzerland, in which distinguished Swiss broadcasters are going to tell listeners about this unique country. Switzerland has achieved unity through diversity. Four races are contained in its frontiers. It has three languages and two religions, yet there is no such thing as a discontented minority, and the country as a whole is a thriving example of contentment arrived at through understanding and intelligent co-operation.
William Rappard is one of Switzerland's leading political figures, and in his talk. he will outline the political circumstances that have made the Swiss people happy.
Further broadcasts will deal with the tradition of the churches and the tradition of Swiss culture. Sir Alfred Zimmern will sum up in the concluding talk.
