' Combined forces—chorus, organ, and orchestra '
Dr. Reginald Jacques
To illustrate his talk this evening, Dr. Reginald Jacques will have the assistance of a chorus, string orchestra, and organ, and will deal particularly with four well-known choruses. His talk should be of interest to all music-makers, both singers and instrumentalists alike, as he will give many hints on how to make the best use of forces such as these.
This programme is the last of the present series, but some of the most popular programmes will be revived later in a modified form.

An interlude of gramophone records
by Tom Wintringham
Produced by Laurence Gilliam
August 8, 1918, was rightly described by General Ludendorff as ' The Black Day' of the German Army. On that day the Allies of the last war began their final assault on the Hindenburg line, and took the first of their ultimate decisive steps to victory. Captain Tom Wintringham , the well-known military writer, and author of ' Deadlock War' and ' Spanish Captain ', has been at pains in his research for this programme.
Dramatic scenes are set at the headquarters of both the German and the Allied High Commands, and other scenes will be set in the trenches. On that occasion the German defeat followed a gigantic offensive, and many listening to this programme may ask themselves, ' Does history repeat itself ? '

H. Fraser-Simson , who wrote the music for the record-breaking Maid of the Mountains, is one of the most versatile and successful of British theatre composers in musical comedy, revue, and ballet. His part songs, such as ' My Sweet Sweeting ', are charmingly arranged, and in collaboration with A. A. Milne he has helped to immortalise Christopher Robin. This programme will demonstrate the wide range of his activities, and will tell listeners of the man himself.
