THE life of the bees is a wonderful blend of -L factory, office and domestic organization, and their ' spring cleaning ' is carried out with that thoroughness and efficiency that distinguish all their work. Miss Kennedy Bell, who will describe it in her talk this afternoon, is well known to listeners as an exponent of the mysteries of the hive.

BOCCHERINI might be called, without dis. respect, a wholesale music-merchant. Probably no other composer in the world's history wrote such a mass of music in the classical' forms-20 Symphonies, 54 String Trios, 95 String Quartets, 125 String Quintets, and so on-nearly 500 instrumental works in all. Yet he died in poverty.
Amongst the lush growth of his compositions Time with his sickto has, alas! ruthlessly mowed. Of all his works, few of us know anything save a certain famous Minuet. There is much good-humoured, mellifluous music in his works, easy and pleasant to listen to, as will be ' generally agreed after this Quartet has been played.
George Pizzey will sing of 'The Wedding of Sara Lee' and 'Jack of All Trades' (with certain other songs to suit). The story of 'How Maggie ran Away' (from 'The Mill on the Floss') will be told. There will be other verse and stories to 'Fill the bill' and the 'Fortune' of an 'Aunt' will be told.
THIS is the first of a series of talks, which will take place on Wednesday evenings during April and June, designed primarily for listeners between fourteen and eighteen, on such varied subjects as jobs and camping, foreign travel and keeping fit. Today's talk starts the series well, for followers of the game will admit that no more sporting player than Charles Buchan , the Arsenal skipper, ever led a team in a Cup-tie or won a First League match off his own boot. There will be a big audience of London football enthusiasts to hear him broadcast tonight.
