Count Alfred A. Hessenstein
Count Hessenstein in his final talk in this series will recall Berlin in the days which he knew so intimately as a boy. He was there in 1888 with his sister, who was presented at the court of Kaiser William I, then an old man of ninety-four and the oldest reigning monarch in Europe. That was the year when Kaiser William I died and his son, the Emperor Frederick, came to the throne practically as a dying man and reigned for ninety-nine days; Count Hessenstein will describe the contrast when the young Crown Prince, Kaiser William II (the Kaiser of the Great War days) succeeded him. He will speak of Frederick's wife-Queen Victoria's daughter, Princess Victoria-and describe being taken to the Lake District near Berlin, where he remembers feeding the peacocks. He will recall driving down what is now one of the most fashionable streets in Berlin-fursurstendamm, which was in those days more like a lane.

5.0 ART IN THE HOME
A talk by ERIC NEWTON (From Regional)
Most listeners will remember that Eric Newton, well-known art critic and broadcaster, gave a talk early this year on posters and how to do them; and that he then set a competition on the best holiday poster, which hundreds of you entered for, and that he judged the competition himself.
It will be like meeting an old friend then when you listen to his talk today on art in the home instead of on the hoardings.
5.15 'THE COWBOY WHO DID'
Episode 16 - 'The Yawning Precipice'.
Effects by Linekar Brothers 1 I
The programme arranged by LORNA WOOD (From North)
You have not missed fifteen other episodes.
'Episode 16: "The Yawning Precipice"' is merely the sort of thing the public saw outside a cinema in the days of silent films, when the pianist, with the help of someone clattering coco-nuts, had to produce the effect of galloping horses. It is hoped to show what the cowboy did and how he did it.
