THIS afternoon's talk is one of the series on holiday subjects. Miss Howard-Burleigh will describe some of the plants we meet with in hedges and ditches along our English roads, and tell us particularly of those which can be gathered and utilized indoors during the winter months.
—II, Up the Chilterns'
ON the north-west of London lie the Chilterns, a a range of little hills that contains some of the most typically English scenery in the Home Counties. Although the Chilterns are within such easy reach, their beauty-spots are still unspoiled, and in this evening's talk Mr. Valentine will describe some of their less-known places and how best to get to them.
THE WIRELESS SYMPHONY
Conducted by STANFORD ROBINSON
WEBER was uncommonly successful in catering for early nineteenth-century German tastes in Opera, which lay in the direction of folk-legends, tales of romantic and chivalrous deeds, and homely sentiment.
The Opera, The Marksman, is about mysterious deeds of black magic, the romantic love of a huntsman, and the machinations of his rival-a capital plot for those who like opera hot and strong, and don't trouble too much about its improbabilities. The Marksman went down at the first performance, so Weber wrote, with ' incredible enthusiasm ...' 'I was called before the curtain ... verses and wreaths came flying up. Soli Deo gloria.'
His Overture is built on melodies sung in the Opera.

FEW names are more familiar to listeners than that of Montague Phillips. He was bom in 1885, and studied at the Royal Academy of Music, of which he later became a Fellow, Professor of Composition, and Examiner. His music for the romantic Opera, The Rebel Maid, is perhaps his most considerable stage work. He has written also a Symphony, a Pianoforte Concerto, a Symphonic Poem, Boadicea and a Heroic Overture.
