and summary of the day's programmes
to start the morning with Leonard Henry, Betty Huntley-Wright, John Rorke
At the piano, Alan Paul
Presented by David Porter
Here are three stars to entertain you this morning. They should make your cup of tea all the nicer, and hope you won't have to hurry it. All three were among the artists who trekked to Bristol when war broke out, to place their talents and personalities at the disposal of the BBC Variety Department - address at that time 'Somewhere in England', or more popularly, Variety Town.
Two of them - Leonard Henry and Betty Huntley-Wright - make a welcome return to Bristol from pantomime. Betty, famous daughter of a famous father and heroine of numberless radio musical comedies, was principal boy in Prince Littler's Aladdin at the Streatham Hill Theatre, while Leonard Henry , one of the earliest and best of broadcasters, was Muddles in Prince's Sleeping Beauty at the Golders Green Hippodrome.
At for John Rorke, he is always, as you know, 'Unusually Yours'

Beatrice Carrelle (violin)
John Yewe Dyer (viola)
Ivor James (violoncello) in part of the hundredth lunch-time concert at the National Gallery, London
Soon after the outbreak of war a series of midday concerts was started at the National Gallery by Myra Hess, who realised that there was a real need for music in wartime London and at an hour that did not interfere with the black-out restrictions. Furthermore, with the engagement of professional artists the concerts would prove a source of benefit to many musicians who found their means of existence seriously curtailed as a direct result of the war. The first concert was given on October 10. Since then the National Gallery has been filled to capacity every day from Monday to Friday during the lunch hour, and among many distinguished visitors who have attended the concerts is Her Majesty the Queen. Thus, in the heart of London some of the busiest people have been able to leave their offices to be stimulated and soothed by the finest artists and music London has to offer. Myra Hess herself has taken a prominent part in these concerts and she will be heard on this occasion with the Menges String Quartet in Mozart's Piano Quartet in G minor, which is one of the master's finest and most dramatic chamber works.

Once Upon a Time
The tale begins with a Prologue, which is the equivalent of ' Once upon a time' (Strauss's own explanation). The first theme to be noticed is the one associated generally with Till's adventures, given out on the horns, and a little later Till's own theme, a sprightly two-bar theme introduced on the clarinet. The tale then proceeds; Till is up to his tricks, tearing through the market-place, sending everybody flying out of his path. His next adventure is with a monk. Till is engaging him in moral conversation ; for a moment he has a twinge of conscience, but almost immediately he is back in his old mood of cynical humour. Next he is off making love to the girls, but the one he favours most will have nothing to do with him ; Till, piqued and vengeful, thunders away wrathfully. Then he meets a number of old pedants, whose priggish talk is represented on the bassoons. Till, having confounded them, puts his fingers to his nose and leaves them, whistling a lively, impertinent little tune. He gets up against the law, is seized and brought to justice. Before the judges he is at first brazen and impudent, but when the death sentence is pronounced poor Till is brought to his senses. He has a brief period of repentance before the hangman performs his duty.
There is an Epilogue, which musically recalls the Prologue. It is designed to show that beneath the jesting exterior of Till a warm heart beats. The rogue is very human.
