The first of a series of four talks, particularly intended for West
in her own character sketches and The Barney Gilbraith Swing
Elspeth Douglas-Reid , who is a Scot, began writing her sketches some years ago when teaching elocution and acting in South Africa. Encouraged by success in Johannesburg, she threw up her job at the Conservatoire of Music there and returned to this country deciding to turn her talent to account here. She gets her ideas from watching ordinary people going about their daily business, and jotting down what she hears on envelopes.
Barney Gilbraith in giving the first BBC broadcast with his swing quartet in June this year introduced listeners to an unusually versatile swing combination. The four players are Barney Gilbraith, accordion ; Reg Conroy , piano and vibraphone ; ' Hank ' Hobson, bass ; and Dudley Barber , drums.
Leader, Frank Thomas

Impressions of the World Conference of Christian Youth in Amsterdam,
July 24-August 2
The Rev. George F. MacLeod , M.C., D.D., of the Iona Community
Fifteen hundred men and women of sixty nations, few over thirty-five years of age, and most of them under twenty-five, have been meeting during the past fortnight in Amsterdam. They have been praying together, studying and discussing the 'Christian Community in the Modern World'. They have been seeking some solid ground amid the chaos of the modern world. They have had the findings of similar conferences of Church Leaders (in Oxford and Edinburgh 1937, and in Madras 1938) on which to build, and have prepared for this Conference for over two years.
Dr. George MacLeod , one of the speakers at the Conference, comes direct from Amsterdam to the studio to tell listeners what they have found.
Rev. George F.
Led by Laurance Turner
Conducted by Aylmer Buesst
