BROADCASTING in America has always a particular interest for us, if only because of the difficulty of deciding between the conflicting accounts of its merits and demerits as compared with our own system.

A Nativity Play in Three Scenes
By BERNARD WALKE
Relayed from St. HILARY'S CHURCH, MARAZION,
CORNWALL
S.B. from Plymouth
ONE of the most notable of the Christmas broadcasts last year was the relaying of the annual Nativity play from the little church of St. Hilary at Marazion, in the extreme West of Cornwall.

There is every reason to believe that this broadcast will at least not be inferior to last year's.
