Bernard Newman
I there is one figure more than another that captures the public imagination, and, if he be an enemy, the public loathing, it is the spy.
Bernard Newman knows most things there are to know about spies in general, and about the German spy system in particular. He had opportunities of studying this during the last war, and he draws an impressive picture of the enormous and intricate workings of the German Secret Service. Part of the broadcast will be in the form of a dialogue such as might take place in any public-house, designed to show just how a clever spy can extract information without arousing suspicion.

Leader, Paul Beard
Conductor, Sir Adrian Boult
As a child in the Australian Bush, Florence Austral was more at home with horses than with music. She used to sing little. songs as an amateur, and then for the fun of the thing entered for a competitive musical festival in her teens. She was heard by the director of the .Melbourne Conservatoire and became a student there. She came to England and studied at the London School of Opera ; went to New York and. had the unique distinction of being offered without previous experience an engagement at the Metropolitan Opera House-which she turned down.
She made her operatic debut in 1922 at Covent Garden as Briinnhilde in The Valkyrie and achieved a sensational success. She is recognised as one of the greatest operatic singers of our time
