- ' That's what I say '
This is the sixth of twelve broadcasts, each prefaced by a short scene from everyday life, and each illustrating the usage of some familiar catch phrase. Are such firs r &Â«Â£?& *&rs ing, or do they represent the wisdom of the ages ? Speakers of wide experience try to find an answer.

Children's Corner Suite
Played by Nina Milkina (piano) Debussy dedicated this charming little suite ' To my dear little Chou-Chou with her father's tender excuses for what follows '.
The first piece, a parody on Clementi's dull studies, is called ' Doctor Gradus ad Parnassum ' ; the original titles of the other pieces were all in English, at least in Debussyan English.
The second piece, ' Jimbo's Lullaby ', should obviously have been ' Jumbo's Lullaby ', but Debussy insisted that ' Jimbo is the elephant's name, not Jumbo '. It is certainly elephantine but Debussy remembered that the elephant is a gentle beast.
Then come ' Serenade for the Doll
(he meant ' to the doll '), ' The snow is. dancing ', The Little Shepherd ' and ' Golliwog's Cake-Walk '. In the middle of the last-named, an amusing experiment in ragtime, Debussy wickedly inserted a quotation from ' the Prelude to Tristan marking it ' with great emotion
(re-formed and directed by Carl Barriteau ), with Don Johnson , Betty Kent , and Nadia Dore. Compere, David Miller
