' What's Wrong with the West End ? '
It is widely held that in many respects the London West-End theatre is not in the healthy state that it should be. This evening's speakers will discuss this question and endeavour to find wherein, if at all, faults lie.
Elsie Beyer is general manager of one of London's largest theatrical management concerns. Herbert Nolan is a foreigner who will bring to the question the objective eye of one looking at the subject from an impartial point of view. Maurice Browne , who will, so to speak, hold the scales of debate, is a well-known West-End manager.

There are few dramatic settings more ' radiogenic ' than the Court of Law, as is evidenced by the number of radio reconstructions of famous trials that have recently been broadcast with such success.
This evening's programme should prove no exception to this rule. You will be taken back to the London Law Courts of 1840, where Francois Benjamin Courvoisier , a Swiss valet, is on trial for the murder of his employer, Lord William Russell.
The trial created something of a sensation, and many of the elite of the land nocked to the court in the hope that they would see justice done,* and an example made of a valet, who might, they thought, be setting a dangerous precedent.
