I like England - a talk by Denis Glover, broadcast via shortwave by the BBC Pacific Service and recorded in Wellington by the N.Z.B.S.

Royal Navy sub-lieutenant [and New Zealand poet] Denis Glover talks about his affection for England during the Second World War.
He describes many of the characteristics and friendliness of the English people: their capacity for putting up with things, their presentation of themselves, their curiosity about other countries and the importance of distinguishing between the English and the Scots.
