A report on current research by DR. IAN OSWALD
Department of Psychiatry, Umversity of Edinburgh
We sleep for nearly a third of our Ives. Why? Scientists, despite much research, still cannot tell us. But they do know a great deal about what is going on during sleep: about sleep in pregnant women, about psychophysiological rhythms and dreams in men: about the effect of environment on duration and the endlessly debated assertion ' I need my eight hours.' A research report illustrated by: DR. IRWIN FEINBERG, New York
DR. CHARLES FISHER, New York DR. DAVID FOULKES, Laramie, Wyoming
DR. STUART LEWIS. Edinburgh

A discovery for radio by Henry Reed with Hugh Burden and Carleton Hobbs
This programme in the Shewin-Tablet saga introduces General Gland and is mainly concerned with the posthumous production of Richard Shewin 's only play. In the course of production the Certain Subject with which it did unquestionably deal became a rather uncertain one: the sex of one of the characters was changed. Billy became Jenny, and on the first nisht the only trace that remained of the Certain Subject was in one line: 'The law may be against us, Jenny, but ordinary people aren't.'
Characters from the play:
The fragments of Hilda Tablet 's musique concrete renforcée and the settings of ' There once was a garden' realised by DONALD SWANN
Produced by DOUGLAS CLEVERDON
