An appeal on behalf of The Alexandra Orphanage, by Angela [text removed] and John [text removed] (two scholars at the Orphanage).

For over 180 years the Alexandra Orphanage has cared for fatherless, motherless, or other necessitous boys and girls of the middle classes from all parts of the British Isles, and even some (of British parentage) from overseas. They remain until they are fifteen, or for a year or two longer if they have been awarded scholarships or bursaries enabling them to attend secondary schools, technical schools, or trade schools. When they leave school they receive an outfit of clothing and are readily found posts in industry. The school at Maitland Park, Haverstock Hill, N.W., accommodates 380 children and is constantly full. £11,000 are needed each year from voluntary contributions. Angela and John, both aged ten, are two of the scholars.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to Angela and John, [address removed].

The fourth of twelve episodes of Patrick Riddell 's adaptation of Victor Hugo 's famous.novel. With music specially composed by Robert Chignell
' The Scene at Arras ' in which Henry Ainley plays the part of ' Valjean '
Baliol Holloway is ' Javert ' and the Story-Teller is Leo Genn
(by permission of Godfrey Tearle )
Play produced by John Cheatle
Jean Valjean , released from the galleys after serving nineteen years for stealing a loaf of bread for his only sister's starving children, finds himself wandering from town to town hounded on every side. He is spiritually redeemed by the Bishop of Dauphine from whom he endeavours to steal a pair of silver candlesticks, and in consequence determines to lead a different life.
In previous instalments you heard how Valjean became M. Madeleine , a benevolent mayor and kindly employer of the little town of Conthil in Lorraine. You also heard how his one-time slavemaster, the brutal Javert, turns up once more and strives to discover his true identity. Javert imprisons Fantine, a girl whom Valjean has befriended, and Valjean promises that her child shall come to no harm.
In today's instalment you will hear how Valjean, disclosing his identity to save another, is sent once more to the galleys, and how, after yet another escape, he searches out Fantine's child. But Javert, unceasing in his persecution, takes up the trail again.
