A feature on Royal Ascot
Written by Keith Bell
Edited and produced by Robert Pocock
With house-parties given on a lavish pre-war scale, Ascot week is one of the main occasions of the London Season. Men go to Ascot for the racing, but for a woman the clothes are more important than the races, and the programme includes recordings of dress designers, society editors, debutantes, and others who are all concerned in the leading fashion parade of the social year.

Another Approach to the Lost Centuries
Talk by H. P. R. Finberg Head of the Department of English Local History.
University College, 'Leicester
In a recent series of broadcasts about the transition from Roman Britain to Saxon England it was evident that there are different views on the extent to which Roman civilisation succeeded in surviving the Saxon invasions. Mr. Finberg shows how at any rate one Roman-British estate passed bodily into Saxon hands without any essential changes in its social structure or methods of farming
