IN his first five talks Sir Ernest Gray dealt with the making of the machinery by which our laws are made. Now he comes to the working of the machine-the history of a legislative measure in its progress through three readings in the Commons, with amendments, divisions, and Committee, its journey to the Lords, and the Royal Assent that finishes its transformation into law.

Sonata in A Flat (Op. 110), First and Second
HERE are many moods, all of them expressed witli wonderful power, and most of them immediately appreciable by anyone.
The FIRST MOVEMENT sings its benignant way in gentle grace, with engaging little touches of ornamentation.
The SECOND MOVEMENT is all brisk, almost brusque determination, as of a person who obviously knows where he is going, and exactly how to get there. It is spare, taut, cleanly energetic music.
CORRECT breathing is the foundation of health, and listeners who heard Dr. Winifred Cullis 's talk on the subject, in her recent series on ' Health and Commonsense.' will be particularly glad of the opportunity to go into it more fully. Professor Barcroft, who this evening starts a new series of six talks, is now Professor of Physiology at Cambridge, where he is a Fellow of King's College. He is a past-President of the Physiological Section of the British Association.

MR. J. B. McEWEN , Principal of the Royal

FOR those who like thrills, there are plenty of places in which to seek them. Crook plays, the movies, steeplechasing, prize-fights— all provide their quota ; but for real genuine hair-raising excitement, one thrill following so fast on the next that one never gets one's breath back at all, nothing can beat the Tourist Trophy races in the Isle of Man, when racing motor-cycles flash along the roads and skid round corners at an incredible number of miles an hour. And, of course, the races serve a very useful purpose in providing a test for the manufacturers, and giving British riders and British machines a chance to show their powers in competition with their rivals from abroad. This eye-witness account will be given by an expert, whose name carries weight in all the circles where motor-cycle racing and production are discussed.
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
