Mr. G. K. CHESTERTON
Mr. G. K. Chesterton 'arrived' as a broadcasting personality at the first attempt. His voice, vigour, and intimate methods give an impression of one man talking confidentially to another about books. His independence, too, in a literary world overloaded with partisan cliques, gives the common reader' assurance of unfettered comment on the books of the hour.
' The Management of Middle Age '—IV, by a Physician
More practical friendly advice from a qualified physician upon everyday problems of health. A noteworthy departure by the medical profession in broadcasting health rules..
Professor NORMAN BAYNES , F.B.A. (Professor of Byzantine History in the University of London): ' The End of the Ancient World—The Christian Empire and the Christian Church.'
Previous talks have outlined the legacies of Greece, Rome and Judea to the modern world. Tonight Professor Baynes describes how these traditions were fused in the Christian Roman Empire of Constantino the Great, and the ideal of the unity of the Roman world transmitted to us through the Middle Ages. The Roman Empire passed, but its ideal of universalism survived through the Christian Church. It is a fascinating story for all who know the importance of the past in the life of the present.

Mr. Evelyn Waugh: To an Old Man
Mr. Evelyn Waugh has rapidly* achieved a reputation as a savage satirist of the bright and young. Tonight he turns his attentions to a representative of the duller and older generation, happily un-named. The result should be invigorating.
By PHILIP WADE
Philip Wade is the author of two previously-performed radio plays, Boss and Oranges and Lemons, and a well-known and experienced radio actor. Family Tree is a drama of traditional loyalties. Newby Hall has belonged to the Ebbworths for three hundred years. Its stones, trees, gardens, servants have achieved a communal being, until the owners feel, far from the place belonging to them, that they belong to it. We glimpse the state of the house and the family at three periods, 1911, 1921 and 1931. Financial stress brings unwelcome sales; then Newby is let furnished ; at last, it is sold by auction. The individual drama of the characters is well worked out, but the author is chiefly concerned with the fortunes of the house and estate, symbolised in the play by a magnificent vine.
