Contemporary Architecture and the Church by the Rev. Peter Hammond
The speaker believes that, in spite of growing interest in good contemporary design for church architecture and decoration, this country lags lamentably behind other European countries and America. He suggests the reasons and compares, in particular, French achievement with our own.

Savonarola and Machiavelli by Maurice Cranston
Production by Douglas Cleverdon
Whether Savonarola and Machiavelli met and talked in the last months of the friar's life is a matter of conjecture; but such an interview might have taken place in 1498 in the prison cell where Savonarola, having offended the Pope and forfeited his political power to his enemies, was awaiting execution.

by Arthur Ransome , C.B.E.
Dorothy Wordsworth in her Journal tells of setting trimmers for pike and how William ' has had several bites but his lines would not stand the pulling.' Dr. Ransome's theme is those diaries in which fishermen have noted their good fortune or bad, in which they talk to themselves, teach themselves to fish, and preserve their happiest hours in a clearer aspic than memory.
