A Commercial Traveller
The question ' And how is it you live? ' has already been addressed to a great variety of people who have come to the microphone to tell listeners about their daily life and work. Tonight the question will be answered by a commercial traveller. In his talk he will describe his experiences ' on the road ', not only in Northern Ireland but in other parts of the British Isles. The fact that his job has prompted him to write a little book of verse proves that he is an enthusiast, and he will quote some of his own lines in the course of this talk.
A description in sound of a daily routine which links London with the North of Ireland arranged by H. L. FLETCHER from impressions secured by the BBC mobile recording unit

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.
