'Refugees'
Sir John Hope Simpson , K.B.E.
This morning's speaker is one of the country's greatest experts on the refugee question, and he will deal with some of the outstanding problems that have recently arisen in Britain and abroad through the influx of refugees from certain countries. Sir John will not confine himself to the present, but will also discuss the refugee question as it has occurred from time to time in earlier history.

Fred Perry
Today's generation of children will, when it grows up, have no memories of Alexandra Palace previous to its present function as the BBC's television station. But this afternoon's speaker, who has been a Muswell Hill resident all his life, remembers the Palace of other days, when it was one of the gayest centres in North London. Great exhibitions were held there, choir festivals, and stunts of all kinds. Blondin walked the tight-rope there, and the famous parachutist, Baldwin, did exhibition jumps.

5.15 'HILLTOPS OF BRITAIN' by L. du Garde Peach No. 3 - 'Dartmoor'
With John Valentine, D.A. Clarke-Smith, Barbara Rumsey, Keith Pyott, Charles Wreford, Franklyn Bellamy, Philip Wade, Leslie Perrins, and Vera Clarke

This afternoon you will again meet John, Betty, and their Uncle Robert, this time as the trio are taking a walk over Dartmoor. You will meet the first men who ever mined tin in this country, and you will hear how they traded with the Phoenicians, and how they received a visit from a mysterious stranger.
The second scene is set four hundred years ago, when the men of Devon and Cornwall marched across Dartmoor on their way to London to protest about Cranmer's new Prayer Book in the reign of Edward VI. Then you will hear something about folk lore of Dartmoor, how it is said to be haunted, by pixies and fairies, and how Jack o' Lanterns and Will o' the Wisps lure travellers from the road.
In the final scene at the time of the Napoleonic Wars, a French prisoner escapes from Dartmoor prison.
