Seventh of a series of gramophone programmes presented by Basil Maine
Conducted by Gideon Fagan. Olive Zorian (violin)
One of the most outstanding of the younger violinists — she is only twenty-six — Olive Zorian started to learn the violin at the age of five. From the Quaker school in the North of England where she was educated, she won two music scholarships and studied both at the Royal Manchester College of Music and the Royal Academy of Music. When at the R.A.M. she won every possible prize for solo violin, including the gold-mounted bow which is awarded each year to the leader of the Academy orchestra.
Olive Zorian made her debut in the 1940 Prom season. Since the war she has been working all over the country with C.E.M.A. She has just formed her own quartet, the other members of which are Marjorie Layers, Winifred Copperwheat , and Norina Semino , and will give her first broadcast with it on Friday.

' John Paul Jones ' : talk by Ian Finlay
Smuggler, slaver, pirate, buccaneer, admiral, founder of the United States Navy, Paul Jones is today most generally known only as a vague character after whom, for some obscure reason, a dance has been called. John Paul of Kircudbright in Scotland was far from a vague character. At an early age he was forced to run away to sea owing to his having been mixed up with a smuggling gang and being in danger from the ' Redcoats '. Born a nobody, he worked his way up through a life of gay adventure to a position which found him the friend of Lafayette and Louis XVI, comrade of Benjamin Franklin, and the first sailor of the U.S. Navy.

Produced by Harry S. Pepper and Ronald Waldman
Dramatic reconstruction by P. H. Burton. Produced by T. Rowland Hughes.
On November 5, 1940, the oil-tanker San Demetrio, sailing in the famous Jervis Bay Convoy, was hit and set on fire. After two days in an open boat, sixteen of her crew re-boarded the burning tanker, managed to put out the fires, and without compass, map, or chart, accomplished the almost impossible feat of bringing her safely to a British port.
Conductor, Ian Whyte
Tchaikovsky's Serenade for string orchestra, written in October 1880, at about the same time as the ' 1812 ' Overture, was one of his own favourite works. It was one of the two he chose to conduct for his London debut on March 22, 1888.
The bustling, clear-cut first movement, the beautiful elegy, and the haunting waltz are certainly among his most delightful inspirations. Both the melody of the slow introduction to the finale and the first theme of the finale proper are Russian folk songs, the first another Volga boatmen's song, the second a merry dance song.
Reading of prose or poetry selected by a guest to the microphone. Produced by Edward Sackville-West
