'David Copperfield' as a serial radio drama follows the trail blazed by the Pickwick Papers and 'Vanity Fair', and will follow much the same technique.
Audrey Lucas, adapter of 'Vanity Fair is again responsible for the adaptation of this great novel. David Copperfield (who is also, of course, his own narrator) will be played by Ronald Simpson, though David as a boy will be played by Robert Holland. Lydia Sherwood plays Mrs. Copperfield, Gladys Young is Betsey Trotwood, and Austin Trevor is Mr. Murdstone.

Vaughan Williams 's ' London ' Symphony is actually a musical impression of London just before the last war began but it is equally descriptive of the great city at any time up to the present war. The first movement is thought to be descriptive of morning in the city ; the Westminster chimes are heard. The slow second movement is based largely on the plaintive melody which introduces it.
The third movement is an impression of London by night and, even though the tempo is brisk, the music strikes a note of sadness and mystery. The fourth movement is full of bustling energy with a preponderating and majestic march tune. Later, after the chimes have been heard again, a solemn epilogue brings the symphony to a close.
