Topic & Speaker:"Rail Baltica" by Andrew Parrott

Chris Tarrant's Extreme Rail Journeys revealed how the railways of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia were fought over by the Germans and Russians, with frequent regauging of the networks. Andrew Parrott knows the Baltic States well from service there in his Army days, and will take their story from Imperial Russia through the interwar republics to independence, when rail's decline gave way to eventual recovery symbolised by the building of a standard-gauge railway which is progressing through Lithuania.

Topic & Speaker:""All Up in the Air" - How Orkney responded to the development of air transport" by Moya McDonald.

Orkney's strategic position as an archipelago at the top of Scotland, facing into the North Atlantic, gave it a key role in the early development of aviation. Moya McDonald of Another Orkney Production will tell us the story of pioneers including Captain Ted Fresson who in April 1931 made a flight from Scotland to Kirkwall in his DH-60G Moth G-AAWO to find a suitable landing place for an airfield for running pleasure flights in the summer months. In August 1931 Fresson made another flight to Orkney in an AVRO 504 G-EBGZ, and interest was shown by James Mackintosh the owner of the `Orcadian` who wrote a number of articles in the newspaper describing these pioneering flights. In February 1932 he again in the DH60 flew back to Kirkwall, and talks began with local backers for a scheduled service to operate from Inverness.
