' A Burns Supper '
Elizabeth Hughes Hallett
Six days hence, on Tuesday, January 25, one of the greatest Scottish occasions falls due-the anniversary of the birth of Robert Burns. The festive board must be suitably furnished, and today Mrs. Hallett, a former teacher at the College of Domestic Science, Atholl Crescent, Edinburgh, and author of a book for hostesses, will give some hints on how it may be done.
A programme in which those who work long hours or in difficult and dangerous jobs take half an hour off to tell listeners about their work
Arranged by Charles Mercer
Produced by Alan Melville
Some of those who will take part in this programme will be a minister, a' fishwife, a farmer, and a shop-keeper. Alan Melville, who will produce, will be remembered for such programmes as ' Landings at Lossiemouth' and many features of a lighter nature in the Scottish programme. He is one of the youngest members of the BBC staff in Scotland. Many of his detective stories have been published, and some years ago he won a literary prize which took him for a tour of Canada. For the past year he has been one of two programme assistants stationed in Aberdeen.
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.
