In the nineteenth century, ballet scores were always specially commissioned, but with the advent of Diaghilev and his famous Ballets Russes in the early part of the present century all that was, changed, and the treasure-houses of the great-and not so great—masters were freely rifled to provide music for ballets of many kinds.
Tonight's programme includes music specially composed and music that has been, shall we say, ' borrowed,' for ballet. The most important example in the latter category is Tchaikovsky's Fantasy Overture ' Hamlet,' which Robert Helpmann has used with such dramatic effect for his ballet of that name. In the same sphere arc numbers from Balanchme's Cotillon, danced to the music of Chabrier. Music specially written for ballet is represented by excerpts from Stravinsky's Fire-bird; from opera-ballet there are the choral dances fom Rimsky-Korsakov's fairy-tale opera Sadko and dances from Meyerbeer's Roben the Devil, Harold Neden

Appeal on behalf of the Missions to Seamen, by Richard Dimbleby , O.B.E.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to Richard Dimbleby , Esq., [address removed]
The Missions to Seamen was founded in 1856 to place on a national basis work begun some years before in the Bristol Channel area. Its aim is the welfare-spiritual and material-of all seafarers irrespective of their race or creed. Its flag, the ' Flying Angel,' has long been for merchant seamen the symbol of world-wide service, and the Society has been able, particularly in two wars, to minister to men of the Royal Navy as well.

7 — 'Mary is Very Ill-used'
Cast in order of speaking:
Lord George's brother, the Marquis of Brotherton. has returned at last to Manor Cross with his Italian wife and his year-old son. But he shuts himself away from the world, treats his relations with the greatest insolence, and will do nothing to prove his child's legitimacy. The Dean has therefore declared war, and the matter, much against Lord George's will, has been placed in the hands of the Dean's lawyer, Mr. Battle.
Tonight's episode reveals the result ot
Mr. Battle's first enquiries, and tells how Mary's friendship with Captain de Baron brings her yet more difficulties.
