Interlude
2.5 Travel Talk
'Flying Home from India'
F. McDERMOTT
In one of the most graphic talks of the term Captain McDermott is to describe the journey by aeroplane from Karachi to England-four thousand miles in five days. This talk is so real that listeners may well imagine that they are making the actual romantic journey, flying along the coastline of the Persian Gulf, spending the night at Sharjah in a comfortable bed, seeing the clerk in the desert checking particulars of the aeroplane under the shelter of its wing ('the only bit of shade there was '), flying over the Tigris and the Euphrates, arriving at Baghdad, reaching the Dead Sea, the Suez Canal, Marseilles, and so to England.
2.25 Interlude
2.30 Feature Programmes and Topical Talks
'Summer'
A miscellany of songs and poems and talks on walking, camping out, camp cooking, youth hostels, etc.
S. P. B. Mais
Few know the joys of the countryside better than S. P. B. Mais, who never takes the road if there is a field-path and so finds his way into the real England, into its loveliest and most secret places, far from well-trodden tracks. Today he is to take you on a summer walk through downland. Birds, flowers, the contours of the hills and woods, the exhilaration of a bathe-you will visualise and enjoy it all through him. He will have James with him - James, who knows how to pitch and strike a tent, how to get a fire going even if sticks are damp. You will capture the spirit and atmosphere of it all-the five minutes' rest. the careless song ; and those of you who are going to spend part of your holidays in the country will surely look forward to it all the more for this broadcast.

3.20 Concert for Schools
An Interlude by the Orchestra of the County School for Boys, Beckenham and Penge, Kent Conductor, HUBERT CLIFFORD
Hubert Clifford's Kentish Suite was awarded the W. W. Cobbett (1935) Prize in an open competition for a suite for school orchestra. Of the two movements to be played this afternoon, Dover is a hornpipe suggesting the atmosphere of the Kentish seaport, and Swift Nicks is a scherzo inspired by a reading of the exploits of a famous highwayman.
