Regional Programme London

Here is a novelty orchestra, most of whose playing members are employees of the Manchester Corporation Transport Department. Though only six years old, the band can already look back on a successful career, including broadcasts on the Northern, Regional, and Empire wavelengths.
The conductor, Arthur F. Hill , is a former Army bandmaster. He joined the army as a band boy in 1901 and left the service in 1926. During this period he was appointed bandmaster of the 20th Batt. (' The Pals ') Manchester Regiment. After the war he became acting bandmaster at Ashton Barracks. He was a professional musician, playing the trombone and the euphonium with several northern bands before becoming a member of the staff of Manchester's Transport Department.

An eye-witness account of the English final at Rochdale, by John Hodgson
Today's water-polo final should be a keenly contested and exciting event, and John Hodgson-President of the Amateur Swimming Association, and now an experienced broadcaster-is the right man to appreciate and describe the thrills. He knows the tension of playing in the final, having had three experiences of it himself.
Five areas take it in turn to have the annual final game within their boundaries and the North is sure to provide an enthusiatic audience for today's match. The record number of wins in these water polo contests is held by Hyde Seal , who have triumphed nine times ; Plaistow United run them close with eight wins, the last three being in succession.
