A talk about what to eat and where to get it, by Ambrose Heath
Recordings of famous music from the theatre
Well-known close harmony singers
(Section C) led by Marie Wilson
Conductor, Sir Adrian Boult
With the exception of a few nocturnes and one or two of his seven concertos, Field's compositions are now almost completely forgotten. Sir Hamilton Harty has now rescued four little-known pieces-a polka, a nocturne, a waltz, and a rondo-from undeserved oblivion and has scored them for small orchestra.
Warlock's Serenade for strings, written in honour of Delius's sixtieth birthday, is a charming little work. It is cleverly written in the style of Delius, but it is nevertheless imbued with the strong characteristics of Warlock's own style.

Conducted by Ian Whyte

3-' Scotland ' by Robert Kemp
The producer of this programme, Robert Kemp , is as Scottish as- any Scot can be. He is an Orcadian by birth and an Aberdonian by adoption-his father is a Deeside clergy-man. Nevertheless, this programme will be the first feature he has produced dealing with Scotland.
Among the many quotations listeners will hear will be Scott's famous passage from the "Lay of the Last Minstrel '—' Breathes there the man with soul so dead.....'
with Anne Lenner and Fred Latham
Presented by M. H. Allen
