Travel Talk
' Earthquakes and Peaches in Chile '
JOHN CANDIA
Listeners will remember John Candia 's talk on the Great Hunting Ground a few weeks ago, for it brought from listeners a rousing welcome. He followed it up with talks on ' Summer in the Pampas' and ' In the Southern Andes '. Today he is to describe an ordinary train journey that he took from Santiago to Valparaiso, and an actual earthquake that he experienced.
Mr. Candia is a partner in a big fruit-broking businfss in the City and lived for many years in Chile, to which he often goes back. He will speak at first hand of the fruit-growing industry ; of the ranch people ; and the Indians. And he will relate a common occurrence in a restaurant in Valdivia, which, if it took place in this country, would create a sensation.

' The Story of Southwark
Cathedral'
A pageant of the history of the Church of St. Mary Overy, by London Bridge, from its foundation to its inauguration
Compiled by D. F. Aitken
Produced by John Richmond
(Empire Programme)
In this dramatic feature listeners will hear about the history of the Church of St. Mary Overy, by London Bridge, and about legends concerning it that fill in the gap where history is lost. They will hear how it is said it came by its name ; about fires and marriages ; accidents and desecrations ; and disaster causing three thousand deaths. Again and again it was threatened, stricken, but survived. The Priory Church of St. Mary Overy became in due course the Parish Church of St. Saviour, and then, after the passing of centuries and only 32 years ago, the Cathedral Church of the new diocese of Southwark.

This is the second broadcast in this new series, and it will deal with the history of coal: showing what happened when it was first discovered in the eighteenth century ; how development took place ; how landlords reacted ; and how labour was recruited. It will give a bird's-eye view tracing coal as a nerve-centre in the development of industrial Britain in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, and will show .how the great industries of railways, shipping, and so forth grew up dependent on the mining of coal, and how coal thus led to Great Britain's supremacy and control of the seas.
