This winter indoor games and pastimes will be more popular than they have been perhaps since our grandparents played them. From time to time talks will be broadcast describing old favourites and some. new ways of passing the long evenings.
11.0 ' Music for Every Day ' (Ages 9-15)
It will be noted that this morning's talk is being given by Ronald Biggs instead of by Sir Walford Davies. The reason for this is that Sir Walford has been forbidden by his doctor to give two broadcasts a week. He will therefore be giving his Music-Making broadcast on Wednesday afternoons only of each week, and Ronald Biggs , Director of the Rural Music Schools' Council, will be giving the Thursday morning broadcast.
