Sir Henry J.
'W. H. Page'
W. H. Page , American Ambassador to Britain during the War, was -a magnificent letter-writer ; an American who was also a cosmopolitan ; and a man who was capable of the most far-sighted and almost tender sympathy with this country. Yet he was a very independent man, and a critical, kindly, and at times very humorous observer, of English life and English character.
With tonight's talk that well-known broadcaster Eric Gillett brings the present series to a close. He has discussed such good correspondents as Charles Lamb , John Keats , Jane Austen , Horace Wal pole, Sir Walter Scott , and Professor Sir Walter Raleigh.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
