John Slater makes an appeal on behalf of the Television Fund of the National Institute for the Deaf.
at 7.45
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to John Slater, [address removed]

Deafness in one form or another affects the lives of two and a half million people in Britain. Fifty thousand are totally deaf and will never hear a sound in their lives.
To all these people sound radio means nothing as a medium of interest and pleasure. But Television is a medium they can follow, particularly the programmes which have a high visual content. Television sets have already been installed in some of the special schools for deaf children, Homes, Institutes, and Clubs for the Deaf all over the country. Many more are needed. One of the ambitions of the National Institute for the Deaf is to see all such places equipped with television. All contributions to the Appeal will be used for this purpose.

A play of detection by Raymond Bowers.
[starring] Terence Morgan and Bernard Lee
The action takes place at the Clostins' house, off Knightsbridge in London.
(Terence Morgan appears by permission of George Minter Productions)

Clostin is not a pleasant man to have dealings with. He is agreeable enough to meet for he has charm and an easy manner. But he is in all things an opportunist, a schemer. He married for money, calculatingly, and for all his casual airs there is something calculating about everything he does. From the very beginning of tonight's play Clostin is planning something. For much of the time he is improvising, feeling his way, trying cleverly to find out what his wife Anne has in mind, where Peebles fits in, what Hurst has learnt from the others. And if this shrouds the play in mystery that is as it should be, for it is a play of detection, a subtle account of a battle of wits.
