'My Programme,' by Nora Nicolls
'There are fifty-seven ways of constructing tribal lays, and every blessed one of them is right,' says Rudyard Kipling. According to the views expressed by listeners the number of ways of constructing 'The Perfect Children's Hour Programme' is infinitely greater. With the idea of imparting variety, 'My Programme' days are to be arranged in The Children's Hour from time to time. Mrs. Nicolls was at one time known to Manchester listeners because of her work there in the Children's Hour.

Lady Macbeths and Portias may make their mark in the history of the stage, but most of us have - or had, in the days when pantomime was in its prime - a particular affection for the Principal Boy. Miss Ada Reeve was long the Principal Boy par excellence; she had all the dash, verve and sparkle that the role demands, and, though she played many famous parts (was she not The Shop Girl and San Toy?), she will be long remembered as Aladdin and Jack. Her admirers will be glad to welcome her first appearance before the microphone.
