Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.' Jesus Christ spoke those words of himself before his death and his Resurrection helps us to understand their meaning. But they do not i.pply only to him; they lay bare a principle of ' life through death ' which is God's purpose for all men, and for all spheres of life. Apart from this faith, we tend to. hold on to what we know, fearful of what the future may bring.
This service is the first of four that will apply this principle to our own lives, to the life of the Church, to the Bible, and to the world in which we live.

Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone; but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.' Jesus Christ spoke those words of himself before his death, and his Resurrection helps us to understand their meaning. But they do not apply only to him; they lay bare a principle of ' Life through death ' which is God's purpose for all men. and for aU spheres of life. Apart from this faith, we tend to hold on to what we know. fearful of what the future may bring.
This service is the second of four that will apply this principle to our own lives, to the life of the Church, to the Bible, and to the world in which we live. In each of these spheres, what does it mean to find life through losing it?

Few Europeans have travelled widely in Tibet, partly because it is geographically remote but mainly because since the Chinese invasion it has been a closed country. It retains, however, a strong hold on the European imagination and those who have once come under its spell keep in touch as far as possible. Three such men discuss it in this programme.
H.R.H. Prince Peter of Greece and Denmark first visited Tibet in 1938; has a home in Kalimpong from which he conducts research into the lives of the 20,000 Tibetans who visit the market there each year; was leader of the Danish Scientific Mission to Afghanistan and Central Asia in 1953 Marco Pallis musician, and author of a book about Tibet entitled Peaks and Lamas; has stayed and studied in a number of Tibetan lamaseries and published a book in Tibetan

The Secretary of the West Wickham, Kent, Fraternal of Clergy and Afinisters, here introduces tonight's service:
' I don't hold with all these denominations. After all, we're all making for the same place.' That is sometimes said as an excuse for not belonging to any church by those who are not making for anywhere in particular. But in one typical outer London suburb, West Wickham in Kent, ' all these denominations ' will be making for the same place this evening. From six different churches, Church of England, Baptist, Congregational, and Methodist, processions of worshippers will converge on the High Street and go together to Emmanuel Congregational Church: last year they made for a Parish Church; all have their turn. These processions will come from the old Parish Church, still on the edge of open country, where rectors of West Wickham have ministered for six and a half centuries before there was any London suburb on their doorstep; from two new Parish Churches, and from three new Free Churches, all built or at least begun only just before the war, to serve this new town of some twenty thousand people living in road after road of houses built for city workers.
At West Wickham. along with many other places, we see no reason why we should just sit down and accept ' our unhappy divisions.' We do not expect every member of a family to be made on the same pattern; we do expect them to be a united family, however differently Peter puts things from Paul. So on Whit Sunday this united service will be conducted by the whole Fraternal of clergy and ministers.

It is 1920 as imagined by H. G. WeUs in 1906. The 1914 war 'has not happened. The world is securely at peace. Bert Smallways and his friend Grubb, dressed up as Arabs, are going along the south coast singing comic songs to the holiday crowds.
At Dymchurch a balloon suddenly comes down. Everyone catches hold of the rope on the basket. The man in ittifts out a largo lady and the balloon gives a terrific jerk upward. The man loses his balance and falls on to the beach. Bert and Gru.bb, who are leaning over the edge of the basket, are thrown into it, and carried away out across the sea. They put on two fur coats, and find a portfolio containing The plans for the first flying machine in the world.
The balloon drifts across Germany and the friends see below them a huge fleet of Zeppelins tethered to t'he ground
