In 'Itma' this most versatile kingpin of comedy was Fusspot, old Jollop, and the immortal Funf. He is 'Funfing' still in 'It's that Sand Again'. As he has shown repeatedly, in 'Adolph in Blunderland', in 'Airs and Disgraces', in 'Every-man Jack', and many another radio show since the war, he is the most resourceful of artists. He can twist his voice about so much that he can impersonate anybody he feels inclined to, and patter in a dozen languages. He is slight, dapper, lean, with dark hair that keeps its shiny neatness until he gives an impersonation of Hitler which invariably brings down the house.
by Walter D. Wright
From fiction and books of social history people today have a general idea of what Victorian schooling was like. These sources, however, do not always reveal such intimate understanding of the question as do the enquiring methods of Walter D. Wright.
Mr. Wright is a Staffordshire schoolmaster who has already broadcast on ' Schoolboy howlers ' and 'Things children say'. Recently he has been busy researching in old school log books, and from these he has pieced together a representative picture of Victorian schooldays from the viewpoint of the teacher in those times.

Schubert's Symphony No. 9 in C has long been acknowledged the world over as one of the supreme masterpieces of symphonic music.
It owes something to Beethoven, yet differs fundamentally from his conception of the symphony. Beethoven's symphonies are essentially
.logical, tightly knit, epic ; Schi-bert s
'are wayward, loose, and essentially lyrical.
The C major is, in many ways the direct ancestor of the vast canvases of Bruckner and Mahler. It was certainly this symphony, a huge classical mould, filltd with a wealth of romantic improvisation, that served Bruckner as a model for what Brahms so unkindly described as his 'symphonic boaconstrictors
It was written a few months before Schubert died in 1828, and rehearsed in his lifetime but laid aside as too difficult. The first performance did not take place until
1839, when Mendelssohn conducted at a Gewandhaus concert in Leipzig.
