A collaboration between Olga Katzin and Pearl Binder.

This programme will be an interesting example of how an author and an artist collaborate to produce an illustrated book. Pearl Binder is an artist who has illustrated several books, including "The Real East-End", by Thomas Burke, "Back Stage", by Philip Godfrey, and Jane Austen's "Persuasion". Olga Katzin, the wife of Hugh Miller, the actor, is a well-known journalist who writes in periodicals under various pseudonyms.
Today Olga Katzin will make a forecast of life a hundred years hence, and Pearl Binder will illustrate her verse before the television camera.
