Following on the success of the last "Query" Programme on May 7th, listeners are again invited to submit a draft of the programme, complete with names of artists, items, and announcer, as it would ordinarily have been sent to press for The Radio Times.
The most successful entrant will be awarded a prize of five guineas, and each of the two runners-up two guineas; the first five competitors will be invited to spend an evening at the London Studio. All entries must reach 2, Savoy Hill, not later than first post on Monday, July 21st, 1924, and envelopes clearly marked "Query Programme" in the top left-hand corner.
The portions of the programme concerned in this competition fall only between 8.0 and 10.0 p.m., and 10.30 and 11.0 p.m.
