told by 'Snowshoe' (Brendan Vallings)

B. K. Vallings has spent many years in Western Canada and the Western States of America, and this evening viewers will see and hear a man who has had first-hand experience of rodeos and all the rest of the things associated with cowboy life. In 'sound' programmes he has broadcast several talks, among which was a series on beavers in the Children's Hour; and he is a frequent contributor to the Children's Page in The Radio Times.
He now lives in Shropshire in a house appropriately named Musquash Cottage, and is helping the Ministry of Agriculture to combat the musk-rat.

Bowyer and Ravell have been dancing together for two years, and have appeared in almost every capital in Europe. Ravell studied ballet-dancing on the Continent, and for three years she was with the Dalcroze School in Geneva. Her partner, Bowyer, arranged all the dances in a film that is to be released very shortly, featuring Walford Hyden's popular BBC show, "Cafe Colette".
