When he was six years old Donald Thorne joined the choir of St. Mark's Church, Clerkenwell, and soon knew all the hymn tunes by heart. At the age of fourteen he was appointed organist. Since he first won his spurs in the West End of London he has been responsible for arranging many of the big hit-numbers for such famous dance-band leaders as Jack Hylton, Henry Hall, Jack Payne, Debroy Somers, and Carroll Gibbons.

Frederick Smetana was, like all natives of Bohemia, an intense patriot and lover of the natural beauties of his country. He wrote a series of six symphonic poems in praise of Bohemia, entitled' My Country '. The one now to be performed is the first, and its title refers to the River Vltava (or Moldau), Bohemia's most important waterway. The music sets out to describe the course of the river from its rise in a forest spring, through the meadows, past the towns, to the sea. It is obviously the simplest kind of programme music, made up of folk tunes and lilting melodies, but all the more fascinating for its freedom from complications.

A fortnight ago (Monday, October 21) the Prime Minister broadcast his memorable message to France. In order that as many listeners in this country as wished to hear him should be able to do so, the advertised programmes were interrupted Jo include the English version of his speech. This necessarily affected two programmes-the first episode of ' Dandy Lion ' and the broadcast version of the musical comedy The Cat and the Fiddle. But these two broadcasts were only postponed. Episode 1 of Dandy Lion ' to last Monday (October 28), The Cat and the Fiddle to this evening. This explains why Episode 2 originally announced for last Monday, is announced again this evening.
