'HEN ARFERION LLANDEBIE '

Regional Programme Wales

' Ideas are interchanged in Maguiresbridge, County Fermanagh ' It was the success of the ' Provincial Journey ' programmes, in which the microphone went to various large provincial centres in search of entertainment, history, and interest, that led a year ago to the extension of the idea to villages. The method of production was considerably modified, and in the ' Village Opinion ' series four people are chosen and invited to sit around the microphone and talk about the village or the topics of outstanding interest in it at the time. The only essential common bond among the four speakers is the village ; for the rest, they come from all walks of life.
Villages whose opinion has been vented include Cushendall, Fintona, and Castlewellan. Maguiresbridge, in County Fermanagh, took the air last April, but owing to another programme over-running its time, Maguiresbridge was cut short. This evening, however, the four Maguireshridge villagers will again sit round the microphone and resume the discussion they had to abandon last April.

(By permission of R. D. Harrison, O.B.E., Commissioner of Police)
Conducted by District-Inspector George C. Ferguson, Director of Music, the Royal Ulster Constabulary
William Broderick (bass)

The Royal Ulster Constabulary band was formed in 1905 as the Belfast Band of the Royal Irish Constabulary. On the formation of the Royal Ulster Constabulary it remained as the official band of that force, and it is still conducted by the original director of music, District-Inspector George C. Ferguson. It has been recruited mainly from military bands, and with a personnel of thirty-six players, it represents about twenty-eight separate battalions. The band plays at many official functions and in the public parks of Belfast, and has broadcast many times in the Northern Ireland programme.
William Broderick, who is soloist in this concert, has broadcast before, and this year won the Bass Solo at the Belfast Musical Competitions and the O'Mara Operatic Cup and Bass Solo at the Feis Ceoil in Dublin.
