' An extra sack to the acre' by Professor J. A. Scott Watson
The Minister of Agriculture has said that where we have thought in terms of six or eight sacks to the acre we should now aim at eight or ten on even more. Today Professor Scott Watson is going to talk about spring cultivations and manurial dressings for spring crops, which will ensure this increase of yield. Professor Scott Watson has had practical experience of arable cropping on the St... John's College Farm at Long Wittenham, in Oxfordshire.

Conductor, Sir Adrian Boult ORCHESTRA
Stanford's choral ballad ' Phaudrig Crohoore ' was first produced at the Norwich Festival in 1896. The ballad is an Irish legend telling of Phaudrig Crohoore (or .Patrick Connor), 'a broth of a boy', six foot eight, and his love for Kathleen O'Brien. Phaudrig had a rival, Michael O'Hanlon, who was favoured by Kathleen's father, and a marriage was arranged between Michael and Kathleen. On the wedding day when the guests were assembled and the ceremony was about to begin, Phaudrig strode in and went straight to Kathleen asking her if it was by her own free choice that she was marrying Michael, Her tearful eye and pale cheek told him the truth -that her heart was his. Then said Phaudrig: She's mine, in spite of you all! ' O'Hanlon challenged him to fight but with one blow Phaudrig struck him dead. Then, seizing Kathleen in his arms, he leaped on his horse and galloped away before the amazed guests could stop him.
The tale ends there, but in an epilogue the chorus sings a final stanza telling how Phaudrig fell in battle.

Trio in A minor, Op. 114, for clarinet, cello, and piano played by Stephen Waters (clarinet); Antonia Butler (cello) ; Kathleen Markwell
Brahms wrote his Trio for clarinet, cello, and piano, like his Clarinet Quintet and clarinet sonatas, for the clarinettist, Miihlfeld, of von Billow's famous Meiningen Orchestra.
Though rarely heard, it is a fine work in the composer's later compressed style. It is said that Brahms intended the opening theme for that of a fifth symphony.
