A Demonstration of Ju-Jitsu by Bob Gregory assisted by Micky Flack, King Curtis, and Helga Brandt
This programme promises to be the best of the excellent series featuring Bob Gregory. In addition to Gregory himself there will come before the camera Micky Flack, known as 'The White Owl', Helga Brandt, who is a world-famous ice-skater, and King Curtis, who is called, for reasons long remembered by his opponents, 'Rough House'. All of them are fine athletes - Bob Gregory is one of the most versatile men in the country: he is a boxer, wrestler, swimmer, and authority on physical fitness generally - and this demonstration will go a good deal further to prove the value of ju-jitsu. The contrasting weights of two of those taking part are interesting: Helga Brandt turns the scales at about eight stone and Curtis weighs nearly seventeen.

This evening Beatrice Harrison comes before the television camera for the first time. She won a gold medal for her 'cello playing when she was only ten years old. Before going to Berlin to carry off the International Mendelssohn Prize she studied at the Royal College of Music. Her repertory is extremely wide, covering music from the early Italian masters to Kodaly, whose unaccompanied 'cello sonata she was the first to perform in England.
