Stanley's Darkest Africa'
J. GRANVILLE SQUIERS
Sir Henry Morton Stanley , 1841-1904 (his real name was John Row -lands), was brought up in St Asaph workhouse ; he shipped as cabin boy to New Orleans and was adopted by a cotton-broker Henry Stanley , whose name he assumed. He became a naturalised American, but was later re-naturalised as British.
After various vicissitudes, he made headway as a newspaper correspondent and was eventually sent by the New York Herald to find
David Livingstone , who (as listeners heard in he last talk in this series) was
" in the interior of Africa. He found him, and described his journey n ' How I Found Livingstone'. On hearing of Livingstone's death he went out to Africa again. During a second African journey he traced the course of the Nile. This journey he described in ' In Darkest Africa
In today's talk Granville Squiers is to give listeners a vivid picture of Stanley's two journeys, of his ordeals and courage, and they will hear something of what he discovered and what he achieved.

R. H. S. CROSSMAN
This is the first of three talks to Sixth Forms by different speakers on problems of democracy. Richard Crossman , who is to tell listeners that the first task of the democrat is to know that he does not, and cannot, know everything, is still a young man, but a seasoned broadcaster, who had a distinguished academic career. He was a schofar of Winchester College, where he became ' Prefect of Hall or head of the school. He won a scholarship to
New College, Oxford, where he became a Fellow and Tutor.
In 1934 he made his radio debut, giving several talks on Germany-labour camps, unemployment clubs, and so forth, which he knew at first hand. In 1935 he contributed a talk to 'Youth. Looks Ahead' and the following year gave no fewer than eleven talks on ' If Plato Lived Again'..
