'The Diet of a School Child,' by a Physician
A Ceremony relayed from The
Menin Gate , Ypres, Belgium
This ceremony at the Memorial to the dead of Ypres is a practical demonstration of international goodwill. A party of several hundred British school children are attending this ceremony at the same time as a Belgian party visits England. At 11.30 M. Lippens , Minister of Public Instruction, will explain the meaning of the Day of Peace to the children in a short speech. At 11.40 the Church of England clergyman resident at Ypres will conduct a short service. This is followed at 11.50 by a Lament, played by the Dagenham Girl Pipers, and then by the Last Post and Reveille. The playing of Brabançonne, the Belgian National Anthem, at 12.5, concludes the ceremony. The music throughout will be played by Ypriana.

Mr. Cecil Lewis starts off by explaining the object of his six talks on film making. This week he deals with the distribution end of the film industry : the organisation of film combines; how pictures are marketed; how what the public wants influences what the public gets.

THE B.B.C. ORCHESTRA
(Section C) (Led by MAME WILSON) Conducted by JULIAN CLIFFORD
The composer calls his work ' Farrago,' which the Pocket Oxford tells us means medley or hotch-potch-harsh words for what is really a sequence of four short movements, Prelude, Minuet, Rondino, and Rigadoon : joined together by association, but by no particular spirit of affinity one with another; in short. a suite in the orthodox tradition. It was composed last summer, is scored for a moderate orchestra, and ie dedicated to D. B. Wyndham Lewis.

Tonight at 9.35.
The action of the play is laid in an office in Scotland Yard, in an East London Police Station, and in Maurice Meister's house in Deptford. Time - the present
This is the first Edgar Wallace play to be broadcast; a notable event for the many listeners who are also readers of the famous novelist who died last year. The crime stories of Edgar Wallace commanded probably a wider public than any novels of the same order since the great days of Sherlock Holmes. Despite his enormous production, he knew how to retain the note of personality in everything he wrote. Crooks and policemen have never seemed more life-like, and, amongst the profusion of incident and thrills, every Wallace story finds room for such characters as Sam Hackitt and Cora Ann, whose lively dialogue twinkles all the more brilliantly for the surrounding gloom. As for 'The Ringer' himself, it is enough to say that he can fairly be called the arch crook of all the Wallace world.
