Hans Heinz Schneeberger (violin)
BBC Symphony Orchestra
(Leader, Paul Beard )
Conducted by Sir Adrian Boult
Although he was born in Geneva in 1890, it is only since the war that Frank Martin has established himself as a composer of international standing. Among his most important works are Le Vin Herbe, the oratorio Golgotha, and the delightful Petite Symphonie Concertante,' all of which have been broadca ,t. His Viol n Concerto, written in 1950-51 at the request of the Formation 'Pro Helvetia,' is dedicated to Paul Sacher and the Basle Chamber Orchestra, who played it for the first time, with Hans Heinz Schneeberger as the soIois.t, at Basle.
Schneeberger, who is twenty-six years old, is a compatriot of the composer, and is now paying his first visit to this country. He has played the Concerto a number of times with much success, in Switzerland and elsewhere, though when the work was previously broadcast, from rhe festival of twentieth-century music in Paris last May, the soloist was Szigeti. Wi-rh i-ts soaring phrases and kaleidoscopic texture, the Concerto affords plenty of scope to a sensitive and accomplished violinist.

Appeal on behalf of Searchlight Cripples' Workshops, by Captain Anthony Kimmins, O.B.E., R.N. (Retd).
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
Searchlight Cripples' Workshops, on the slopes of the South Downs, are a home and workshop for boys and young men too badly handicapped physically to be accepted for a commercial training, even in a very sheltered workshop. Their handicaps prevent them from working sufficiently quickly to earn a living, but they are experts at many crafts includmg chair-seating in cane and rush, basketry, leather work, and rug-making. Everything is done to help them to have as normal a home life as possible, with time and opportunity to join in the activities of their able-bodied friends.

Twice has Lizzie Eustace been robbed, and on both occasions she has deceived the police and the magistrates about the robberies. And now she lies in bed at her house in Mount Street, actually ill with anxiety. If the thieves should now be caught, she knows that the whole truth must come out-that the Eustace diamonds had been stolen not (as she had sworn) with their iron box at Carlisle, but afterwards in London. And then the whole world will know her for a liar and a cheat-her cousin Frank included.
Poor Lucy Morris is still living in Mount Street as companion to Lady
Ambleside, and her fiance Frank still neither writes to her nor goes to see her. Her six months with Lady Ambles.de are drawing to an end, and no arrangement has yet been made as to where she shall go afterwards.

Talk by Andrew Milbourne
The speaker was one of the gallant band of the 1st Airborne Division who made the landing at Arnhem in 1944- Dur:ng the action he lost both hands and an eye. In this talk he describes his fight to rehabilitate himself; how he worked down a coal mine hauling tubs of coal, and how he has now learned to do office work involving great precision of movement.
Beethoven's A flat sonata of 1801, one of the first flowerings of his ' second period," is unconventional in form. Instead of an Allegro for an opening movement, there is an Andante con variazioni (five beautifully contrasted changes rung upon a noble theme), which is followed by a scherzo and trio instead of the slow movement. This comes third, in the shape of the well-known Funeral March (a conception which was to be echoed two years later in the ' Eroica ' symphony). The lovely sunlight of the final rondo, after the solemnity of the Funeral March, is one of Beethoven's happiest inspirations. J. H. Davits
A series of quarterly programmes reviewing archaeological developments and discoveries in the British Isles.
Edited and introduced by Glyn E. Daniel, Ph.D., University Lecturer in Archaeology in the University of Cambridge
In this edition Dr. Daniel introduces: J.F.S. Stone, D.Phil., F.S.A.
Programme produced by Alan Gibson
There is one important point about Stonehenge which was not dealt with in the previous programme in this series, the 'foreign stones' which at some distant period were brought to Stonehenge from far outside Wiltshire. How were they transported, whence and when? Dr. Stone, who is a research chemist, describes how the resources of chemical knowledge have been placed at the service of archaeology in enabling us to answer these questions.
