5.0 Holiday Town
A Visit to Porthcawl
Listeners will be taken to Coney Beach, the fun-fair of the district. They will be able to visualise the Figure Eight, the Caterpillar, and the Mirror Maze. They will hear the shrieks of those who are enjoying the attractions, the laughter and the comments of spectators, the shouts of the spielers and barkers outside the stands. Then there is the Midget Show, the Coconut Shy, and the ever popular Ghost Train, with its skeleton, coffins, and the unknown terrors of darkness. Listeners will hear the train proceeding on its way with an obbligato of screams from the passengers. An additional attraction is Sidney Valentine, Porthcawl's resident ventriloquist, who works on the Beach to a crowd of a hundred or more children. (From Welsh)

5.30 Punchinello

'Ladies and gentlemen, pray how do you do ? If you all happy, me all happy too, Stop and hear my merry littel play; If me make you laugh, me need not make you pay!' (From North)

' The Disobedient Servant'
A pedestrian has been injured by a horse and van belonging to a grocer. He claims damages from the grocer ; liability is denied and compensation refused on the ground that at the time of the accident the horse was being driven by the van boy who had no authority to drive it. What are the pedestrian's rights ?

Act 3 of Wagner's Opera
' LOHENGRIN '
Scene 1, The Bridal Chamber
Scene 2, The Banks of the Scheldt
The poetical motive pervading Lohengrin is the mystical story of the Holy Grail, while the dramatic element is based on the prohibited question of Lohengrin's identity, the asking of which must be fatal to his bride Elsa.
The Third Act completes the tragedy of Lohengrin. Elsa presses for an answer to the fatal question of Lohengrin's name and in the last scene we are taken back to the banks of the Scheldt with King Henry and the assembled knights as at first. Lohengrin solemnly reveals his identity and bids farewell. The swan and boat return. Lohengrin kneels in prayer. The swan disappears and Gottfried released from Ortrud's spell stands by his side. Elsa in despair at Lohengrin's departure dies in Gottfried's arms, while the boat, now drawn by a white dove, disappears in the distance.
