NOW that salesmanship has been recognized as a career and almost elevated to the rank of an art, the human side of the business of buying and selling is being investigated from every point of view. We all know by experienco how much the salesman or saleswoman can do to help the buyer, and that very considerable minority that spends its working days behind the counter knows (often by bitter experience) what the customer could do to help the salesman. ' Sales resistanco ' and ' sales campaigns ' are useful terms, but both the buyer and the seller are human beings, and it pays to remember that fact. Miss Gladys Burlton , who is head of a business training institute, will talk of the human side of the selling game.

Music by LEO FALL
IN pre-syncopation days the musical comedy world revolved in waltz time. The Merry
Widow waltzed into matrimony and set the ball rolling. Then cair.o an avalanche of waltzes from The Waltz Dream ' to ' The Last Waltz ' and heroines invariably lost (Act II) and won (Act III) in ' Three-four ' time. Leo Fall summed up the situation by composing ' The Eternal Waltz.'
JUST as sailers, in the days of wind-jammers, used to send the capstan round to the accompaniment of traditional shanties, so the workers in many industries have their own songs with which they accompany their work.

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
