This radio play was first broadcast on the Northern Ireland wavelength about a month ago. Tonight it can be heard by a wide circle of listeners. Frank O'Connor is a well-known Irish novelist, and the play is based on one of his short stories. It was written in collaboration with Hugh Hunt , producer at the Abbey Theatre, Dublin, and was their first stage work in collaboration. It was produced at the Abbey about a year ago and is being toured in America. It deals with a group of people, most of whom have been witnesses at a murder trial, and one of whom is the acquitted prisoner, returning from the Court in a train.

A Radio Magazine introduced by F. H. Grisewood
Just before Christmas Bertram Mills told the story of how he began as a circus owner, and Lady. Eleanor Smith described some of her experiences with the circus ; E. L. Hawke , secretary of the Royal Meteorological Society, spoke about Christmas weather, an operator from the International Telephone Exchange about the Christmas work at the Exchange, and the buyer of a big London hotel about buying for Christmas. Commander A. B. Campbell described Christmas dinner that he once had in the Frozen North ; and Commander Ivan Smirnoff , who has flown more miles (over 2,000,000) than any other person living, told about his famous flight with the Christmas mails from Holland to Batavia in 1932. Personalities every bit as famous will be coming to the microphone tonight.

An excerpt from the pantomime ' BABES IN THE WOOD '

Regional Programme Northern

Conductor, Tom Morgan
One of the most popular features of broadcasting is the brass band, and most of the crack bands have at one time or another appeared before the microphone. However, until recently the repertoire of the brass band consisted, for the most part, of music of poor quality, but of late years, owing to the enterprise of such bands as Callenders, composers have been encouraged not only to write original works but to make artistic transcriptions of fine music.
This evening's performance by Callenders Band marks the band's hundred-and-fiftieth broadcast. Callenders actually run three bands: the Senior Band: the ' A' Band, which has also broadcast a number of times, the reserve from which members are drawn to fill vacancies in the Senior Band in case of emergency ; and the ' B' Band, which acts as a ' feeeder to the ' A '. Besides these, there is a learners' class where members are taught thf theory of music and given elementary instruction in instrumental work.
