Today, and on Sunday, October 18, two dramatic biographies by Geoffrey Dearmer are to be broadcast for the children and ' for the young in heart of all ages '.
This afternoon the biography chosen is that of Charles T. Studd —' C. T.', as he was called by his friends-both a great cricketer and a great missionary.
Listeners will visualise him playing at the Oval, will follow him to China and into the heart of unknown Africa, and will learn how he and his wife laboured, suffered, rejoiced, and succeeded in the cause of bringing spiritual enlightenment and civilisation to tens of thousands of native men and women. The story concludes with ' C.T.'s ' heroic and happy death as an old and altogether undefeated man.

The rising in Johannesburg and the Jameson Raid
In 1895 there was great discontent among the British in the Transvaal over President Kruger's policy of excluding them from the franchise and in many other ways discriminating against them.
At last they decided to rebel, and part of the plan was that as soon as they rose in Johannesburg, Dr. Jameson, a friend of Cecil Rhodes , was to cross the border with as many men as he could raise.
Divided counsels in Johannesburg caused delay after delay, and Jameson, unable to restrain his followers, crossed the border on his famous ' Raid ' with not many more than five hundred men, on January 1, 1896. The British in Johannesburg were taken by surprise and had to rise before they were ready.
Frank Worthington was in the town at the time. a young man of twenty-one, and joined the rebellion. This evening he is to describe how he joined Colonel Bettington's Horse and rode out to meet Jameson-who never arrived.
