Under the direction of KNEALE KELLEY
Production by BRYAN MICHIE
This skit is a peep behind the microphone and shows the trials and tribulations of a radio producer (not B.B.C.) endeavouring to make the show go over in spite of opposition from a theatrical magnate, temperamental artists; and incompetent ' Yes-men.' Let us add that it is all part of a mythical commercial broadcasting organisation.
At the head of a large cast of popular favourites "is Dorothy Carless , a singer who is to have her first big chance on the air. She has only broadcast once before, and that was when she was put into a programme earlier in the week to make sure ' microphone fright ' did not interfere with her performance in a big part tonight.
(' The Show Goes Over' will be broadcast by all Regionals, except Scottish, tomorrow night)

Conducted by the Rev. W. H. ELUOTT Relayed from St. Michael's, Chester
. Square
The perennial popularity of this Mid-Week Service is, perhaps, largely due to the fact that Mr. Elliott has the gift of making religion very relevant to life. In his talk he takes the most ordinary difficulties and smooths them out.
Listeners will have not iced that since the summer vacation this broadcast has been put forward half an hour, and is now given at 10 o'clock instead of at 10.30. The reason for the change, as was announced at the time, was that
10.30 p.m. seemed too late for a great number of listeners.
In addition to the Mid-Week Service,
Mr. Elliott is to take the ordinary broadcast Sunday evening service on the Sunday before Christmas, December 23, at 8 o'clock.
