For tonight's talk in this series another square peg in a square hole will be presented. A nurse will tell why she thinks she has the ideal job. Why, in fact, she thinks that all women are born nurses, though circumstances or environment may subsequently alter that fact. She will deal with the endless variety of work in her profession, the intensive and detailed training, the various branches of nursing that a qualified nurse can take up afterwards, and she will include some anecdotes of her own long and varied experience.

If the listener is at all prone to nervousness, he or she is strongly advised not to listen to this programme. Written by Denis Johnston , it is presented in the form of an outside broadcast from O'Cahan's Castle, situated on the remote Ulster coast, and from the Nine Glens Hotel near-by. The castle has been derelict for eighty years, and for a very good reason. What the reason is will be understood by all those who hear these forty minutes of thrills.
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

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.
