Listeners are to hear an account of one of the most remarkable impersonation cases that ever occupied the English courts, and one that set England talking as it seldom talked before. It is a story that reads almost like fiction, and fiction of the best: the story of ' Bullocky Orton ', a journeyman-butcher in New South Wales, who read an advertisement of one, Lady Tichborne, who refused to believe that her son had been drowned at sea. He deceived her and half England. His claim to the Tichborne estate collapsed after a speech by Sir John Coleridge , Solicitor-General, lasting three weeks, and he was then arrested in court for perjury. The criminal trial, in 1873, lasted 188 days, when Orton was found guilty and sentenced to fourteen years' penal servitude.

The Registry Office Point of View
A person who professionally has a knowledge of the servant problem second to none is obviously one who runs a registry office. The employer comes to her with exacting requirements and perhaps full of grievances against her last maid. The servant looking for another place perhaps comes burning with indignation against her mistress.
In today's broadcast the manageress of a country registry office is coming to the microphone to discuss the question as she experiences it, and it is hoped that listeners may also hear the point of view of a manageress of a registry office in a town.

Dr. Johnson had for many years given me hopes that we should go together and visit the Hebrides. We reckoned there would be some inconveniences and hardships, and perhaps a little danger ; but these we were persuaded were magnified in the imagination of everybody. When I was at Femey in 1764, I mentioned our design to Voltaire. He looked at me as if I had talked of going to the North Pole and said ' You do not insist on my accompanying you? ' ' No, sir.' ' Then I am very willing that you should go.'
