AMONG Debussy's best.known music for orchestra is a set of three Nocturnes, of which Nuages is the first. Like nearly all his music, it conveys a vivid, although dreamy, impression of the image which inspired it, and as one listens, it is easy to imagine the ' clouds ' of its title, as they sail across the sky. In the orchestral version it begins with a long rolling theme on clarinets and bassoons, which persists throughout the greater part of the piece. Toward the end it makes way for another section in which the movement almost ceases, and, at the close; it dies away in the softest tone.
So much of Debussy's pianoforte music has been arranged for orchestral and other instrumental performance that there is a special interest in hearing one of his orchestral pieces in an arrangement for pianoforte.
SOME of the most enterprising ventures in British film production have been carried out by British Instructional Films, whose managing director, Mr. Bruce Woolfe , will talk tonight. Amongst the pictures that have gone out under their name are Mr. Anthony Asquith 's briltiant films Shooting Stars and Underground, which were made in their studios at Welwyn. Another remarkable film that was recently shown in London-Shiraz, with its Indian setting and all-Indian cast-was also sponsored by them.

A Sea Change, a burlesque opera in what was in those days the popular style, was first published in America in the 'nineties, but until last November, when the B.B.C. performed it, it had never been heard in this country. It proved to be so popular that a repetition of it was almost immediately decided upon.
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.
