This play reconstructs the wonderful work done by the Quakeress, Elizabeth Fry , in reforming prison conditions 120 years ago. The scenes shift from Newgate (where she won the confidence of desperate prisoners) to Whitehall (where she fought to have light and air let into their cells); to the convict ships at the docks ; and then to her home and her eleven children. The broadcast ends with a sidelight on her Continental journeys to visit reigning monarchs who wanted advice from her.

Ships you will see on your holiday
Commander A. B. Campbell
There is no half-way house: a raconteur is either bad, in which case he is a bore, or a raconteur is good, in which case he is a joy, however long he speaks. Commander Campbell is no bore. His reminiscences of the sea have shown him to be a master of impromptu speaking at the microphone. Before he swapped horses' to become a publisher he was a sailor who had served in every part of the globe. For twelve years he was an officer in the Mercantile Marine, and from the outbreak of the war he served in the Royal Navy, doing valuable work with mine-sweepers and later with armed merchant cruisers. In the talk he is to give today he proposes to tell holiday-makers on the coast and on cruises of the ships they may see. But, as he himself says, ' 'I use no script. Until the red light glows I don't know exactly what I'm going to talk about.' Of one thing listeners can be sure, however-an abundance of good stories.

Schumann's C major Symphony is really his third symphony. It was wrongly numbered because the second symphony was published last of all. The composer's biographer, Wasielewsky, tells us that Schumann said of this work : ' I sketched it when I was in a condition of great physical suffering; I may say it was, as it were, the resistance of the spirit which has here visibly influenced me. I sought to contend with my bodily state. The first movement is full of this contest, and is in its character very freakish and contumacious.'
