' The Agricultural Worker '
A discussion between H. G. Robin son, Principal of the Midland Agricultural College, Sutton Boning -ton, and J. R. Lam ' ley, Midland Counties Organiser, National Union of Agricultural Workers
At a conference of Midland farmers convened by the BBC a year ago there was a demand for a talk on the agricultural worker, and many farmers spoke of the drift of young country people to the towns.
Both the contributors to this evening's broadcast discussion have had previous experience at the microphone. Principal Robinson graduated to his post from practical farming.

The Ritz Players, whose hcadqi'.arters are in Leicester. had thtir first Midland broadcast over three years ago, and have been on the air many times since. They were formed about ten years ago. Each player is an expert musician who can play several instruments, and four of them specialise in harmonising on trumpets. The combination has had summer contracts at the West Park Pavilion, Jersey, for several seasons ; in the winter it plays at many of the hunt balls in the Shires. One of its proudest memories is the occasion when it was engaged for the ball in connection with the Leicester visit of the King and Queen, who were then the Duke and Duchess of York.

A Programme of Contemporary
Contrasts in Village Life by Robin Whitworth
In this programme-whieh was first broadcast from Nottinghamshire in November, 1936 — the people of three neighbouring villages will talk of their ways of life, and the effects that modern changes have had on them. The first is Uaxton, the only village where the mediaeval system of open field agriculture is still practised ; the second is Caunton, which remains outwardly unchanged, but which has been affected in subtler ways ; while to the third, Ollerton, industrialisation has already come.
