The History and People of the River from the Welsh Border to the Sea
Recorded and dramatised by Robin Whitworth and Francis Dillon and jointly produced in the Midland and West of England Regions
As well as being an ' actuality ' programme this broadcast will be partly historical. Great days will be recalled, great days of the time when the English fought the Welsh on sight and when the Severn and the Severn Marches formed the boundary between the two nations. On the banks of the river are many sites of battlefields of the past. In this way the river as it is will be presented against a background of the river as it was.
The Severn rises in Montgomery-shire and flows two hundred miles before it reaches the Bristol Channel. It is not surprising, therefore, that this dramatisation is to be jointly produced by two Regions.
Interesting pictures of the River
Severn will be found on page 9

A reading from the novel by Francis Brett Young arranged for broadcasting by C. Henry Warren and read by Owen Reed
Francis Brett Young is probably the most distinguished living novelist of the Midlands. He was born in Worcestershire, his father being medical officer at Halesowen. His ' Portrait of Clare ' was the first novel chosen for serial reading in the Midland programmes.
' The House under the Water' draws its title from Rhayader, where a large area was submerged when the Birmingham Waterworks were made.
