RAD10.--Now that the excitements of Election Night are over. it is possible to sit hack and consider dispassionately the radio presentation of the whole episode. 1 think the B.H.C. gave us wonderful service—not only in the minute-by-minute announcements of results but in those wonderful little interviews with members of different parties during and after the time when the votes were being counted.
The interviewers were aggressive, asking very awkward questions. Honor Balfour struck us as being particularly on the warpath and 1 pitied Mr. Attlee having to answer all her questions when he must have been feeling very down in the dumps.
The star turn of the night, however. was undoubtedly that amazing electronic computor which was treated with amused respect by everyone but which, like so many man-made things, muted out to be not so efficient as expected.
Friday night's "The Verdict of the Polls " was a very well arranged documentary with the voices of friends all over the world giving their views of the result of the election.
The election seems to have been surrounded by a sea of sporting events which have added to the excitements of a packed week. Here again I marvel at the slick manner in which our sporting commentators managed to reel off the names of horses or cricketers as if they had known them all their lives.
