The Dance Orchestra, directed by Billy Tement
Produced by Reginald Smith
Edward Cooper, who also wrote the book, lyrics, and music of the first instalment of ' Family Racket' broadcast on November 4, has made a name for himself in cabaret and musical comedy, especially for his songs at the piano. He writes most of his own songs, and most listeners have laughed at one time or another over lines such as ' I was one of the beaux at Harrogate, when Bath was only a sink '. Noel Coward's song ' Don't put your daughter on the stage, Mrs. Worthington ' was written specially for Cooper.

The title of ' Images' was one of which Debussy was rather fond. It well expresses the slightly pictorial nature of his music and emphasises its affinity with the Whistler paintings and Japanese colour-prints that he loved. He wrote three sets of ' Images the first two for piano, and the third for orchestra.
Iberia, the second of the orchestral
' Images', ', is in three distinct movements, though the second passes without a break into the third: ' In highways and byways ', 'Perfumes of the night', and Festival morning '. This piece alone should kill the idea, if it survives, that Debussy was a master only of half-lights, haze, and colour effects of shot-silk. The whole piece glows with warmth and light and exuberant vitality.
