It is comparatively rare for an English professional football player to sign on with a French team and play football in France. But it was the experience of Alex Cheyne.
Born at Glasgow, he played for Shettleston as a junior and then went up to Aberdeen. Then Chelsea secured him, and after a season or two with them he was tempted away by 'The Sporting Club de Nimes' to play for their first team and to coach their second. He stayed a year or two, but now he is back again with Chelsea.
Whilst with the Nimes Club he travelled a good deal, playing matches in Paris and Lille, in the south of France, and even one at Bilbao in Spain against an Italian team. He has some amusing stories to tell about the difference between League football on the Continent and in England. He is glad to be back, but he had a good time out in France, a great many laughs, and he learnt the language.

THE ORCHESTRA, under the direction of KNEALE KELLEY
The presence of Claude Dampier in a programme is a guarantee of laughter. He has toured the world with his act, and he had a big name in the Dominions before he came into prominence over here.
Rich and Silva return to the air for the first time since their broadcast in Variety in June. Vic Oliver is an American comedian on his fourth visit here, and just off home again. Whilst Will Fyffe will present the ever-popular brand of Scottish humour. He has just finished a film, Rolling Home, and has received a big offer to make one in Hollywood.
Trevor Watkins has not broadcast in a Variety programme for about two years. He has been playing in Frederica and The Dubarry (on tour with Binnie Hale ). This summer he scored a big hit with an act that he wrote himself, called ' Schubert Fantasy'.

THE B.B.C. THEATRE

(Leader, MONTAGUE BREARLEY)
Conductor,
STANFORD ROBINSON
The American composers in this programme range from Stephen Foster -who wrote most of his songs, including Old Folks at Home, nearly a hundred years ago-right up to Gershwin, Groft, and Savino, some of those who are engaged in livening up New York today and the rest of the world the day after. In between is Sousa, who, for popularity, could in his time have given points to most of the others in this programme.
