A Radio Broadcast from the BBC

9 September, 1944
* * *


Mysterious explosions rocked London last evening and Paris earlier in the day last: two in London, killing three, and one in Paris.

The explosions reawakened memories of the Blitz. We had all hoped such days were ended.

The explosions in London have been officially explained as gas main accidents. This explanation is complicated by the similar explosions in Paris earlier yesterday. But further inquiry must be put aside for the sake of the war effort.

Eyewitnesses describe seeing a projectile flying through the air before the explosions. Residents of London have taken to calling the enigmas “flying gas pipes” in response to the government’s explanation.

Yet the residents of London seem to remain unshaken. “This is nothing compared to what we’ve already been through,” said one Londoner. The will to strive onward is strong.
