Viewers will remember the interesting demonstration given on January 1 by members of the R.A.F. Boxing Association, and, more recently, the thrilling amateur contests between England and Ireland that were televised from the concert hall of Alexandra Palace. The boxing to be presented today will be particularly easy to follow, for one boxer will be dressed in black, the other in white.

Esterhaz, the palace of the Esterhazy family, was said to have no place but Versailles to compare with it for magnificence There were magnificent flower gardens, summer houses, hermitages, a deer park, temples, and grottoes. Above all, there were two theatres for operas, dramas, and marionettes, presided over by the Kapellmeister, who was Haydn, at a salary of Â£78 a year. In this programme an impression will be given of the scene when Maria Theresa visited Esterhaz in 1773. She was entertained by a new Haydn symphony, now known by her name; an opera called L'Infedelta Delusa; and a marionette production called Philemon und Baucis.
