Drifting through the Galapagos Islands by Adrian Seligman
Readers of Adrian Seligman's book The Voyage of the Cap Pilar will remember that after coming down from University the author spent six years at sea, mostly in Finnish sailing ships, and finally invested a small legacy in the purchase of a barquentine of 259 tons gross which he and two other trained seamen with a changing crew of amateurs eventually sailed round the world. In this talk he describes a visit to the Galapagos Islands, 800 miles south-west of Panama, which he made during the course of this voyage.

Welbeck String Orchestra (Leader, Vera Kantrovitch )
Conductor, Maurice Miles
The Concerto for double string orchestra bids fair to become one of Michael Tippett's best-known works. It has been played and broadcast a number of times recently, and on August 24 Tippett himself conducted a performance at a Promenade Concert. It gives an impression of great liveliness of mind; intricate rhythms abound, and each of the two orchestras pursues its way with a commendable show of independence. The work contains several appealing melodies, the craftsmanship is skilled, and there is an engaging air of freshness and charm. The Concerto, which was written in 1939, has three movements: Allegro con brio, Adagio cantabile, and Allegro molto.

More recently in Oxford, there has been held an international Methodist Congress on the progress of the Methodist fellowship throughout the world. It it this congress that provides the immediate background to tonight's service.
Appeal on behalf of the British Student Tuberculosis Fund, by The Countess Mountbatten of Burma, C.I., G.B.E., D.c.v.O.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to [address removed].
The British Student Tuberculosis Fund aims to give assistance to students of British and other nationalities who suffer from tuberculosis. The immediate project is to establish a Student Tuberculosis Centre, but before this centre can be created it is intended to give aid on an individual basis.
The Centre will receive students undergoing the latter part of their treatment for tuberculosis and able to continue their studies with tuition and under supervision. This principle follows the example set by the many student tuberculosis centres on the Continent, where studies are continued as a form of occupational therapy.
Students have already helped by collecting a sum of £ 13,000 towards the centre.

7—' The Battle Hymn of Manuel-del-Popolo ' with Anthony Jacobs Richard Taylor , Ronald Sidney , Eric Anderson , Richard HurndaM , and John Turnbull
Produced by Frederick Bradnum
John Kemp has escaped from the beleaguered Casa Riego dressed as a Brother of Pity and following the funeral cortege of Don Baithasar and Don Carlos. With Seraphina and Tomas Castro he pulls out to sea in a small rowing boat and follows the flotilla of the Lugarenos—the pirates led by Manuel del Popolo-on their way to attack a West Indiaman lying becalmed off Rio Medio. Clambering on board Kemp creates a diversion and the Lugarenos are beaten off, leaving Manuel a prisoner. From Sebright, the mate, Kemp discovers that the ship is the Lion, bound for Havana and commanded by an old acquaintance from Jamaica, Captain Williams.
