The Good Friday Morning Service at St. Nicholas Church, Bristol,has been broadcast in the Western programme for some years past. This year, at the request of many listeners, it is being extended to the National and all Regional programmes.
The Bishop of Bristol, who is to give the Address, is a well-known broadcaster. It will be remembered that as Canon Woodward he broadcast a number of children's services from St. John's, Smith Square-a tradition which he carries on in the West from St. Mary Redcliffe, Bristol.

A mosaic of words and music illustrating two versions of the countryside
Rose Bruford Hubert Gregg
Pastoral or rustic? Arcadia or the good earth ? The townsman's dream of country life, or the farmer's life of hard work ? This evening's mosaic of prose and verse presents two possible attitudes towards life in the English countryside.
(Other arrangements by Dorothy Hogben )

A miscellany of stories of old-time travel compiled from material supplied by George Wright and others arranged by Felix Felton
At Easter, modern methods of transport are taxed to their utmost with holiday-makers and the Easter mail. This programme looks back to the time, just over a hundred years ago, when letters and passengers were conveyed by the mail-coach. Travel had an exciting side to it then, which for all the increased speed and comfort is to some extent missing in these days. Travel was jeopardised then by anything from bad weather to highwaymen, and even by the temperament of the coachman.

Conducted by Harold Lowe Die Fledermaus is the perfect operetta. It is certainly the most famous and the most popular. Even Strauss himself never wrote anything finer ; it sparkles with the gayest music imaginable, and the plot is, of its kind, first rate. It has been performed many thousands of times in Vienna alone, and its total performances all over the world must constitute a record.
