LAST term Mr. Scott gave a short series of talks on the geological structure of England, that served to introduce many listeners to the interesting study of the ' story of the stones.' In the two talks, of which this afternoon's is the first, he will give them some instruction in the practical side of the subject, which will be very useful to those who are setting out with hammers and specimen-boxes to test their conclusions for themselves.
rpHREE talks on Italy and two on Spain
A have given listeners a very good idea of the advantages of spending a holiday in Granada or Seville, San Remo or Perugia, Venice or Capri. Now, France is to be similarly dealt with, and, as in Csesar's time (any schoolboy can tell you), all Gaul was divided into three parts, so all France will be divided into three talks. This afternoon Mr. Holt Marvell , the novelist, will describe that sunbathed Paradise where the Mediterranean laps the rocks of the Cote d'Azur, a region in which he has lived for many year?. He will deal not so much with such crowded resorts as Monte Carlo and Cannes as with the lovely little villages that lie off the petrol-laden track.

No English man of letters has been better loved than Lamb; his contemporaries and their posterity vie with each other in a tender, protecting fondness for the humorist whose own life was so full of tragedy, the stammerer who was the wittiest talker of his age.

LAST week Mr. Stephenson discussed the traffic-bearing potentialities of the roads.
To-night he starts his consideration of the railways, which have for so long been supreme amongst modern forms of transport, and which stand in an intimate, but peculiar relation to the State. As a former official on the headquarters staff of one of the big railway combines, he has an unrivalled knowledge of how they work.
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
