Mr. JULIAN HUXLEY (Honorary Lecturer in Zoology and Animal Biology in the University of London)
The nature and organisation of scientific research, although of considerable public importance, is little known to the general public. In this series Mr. Huxley will attempt to give listeners a vivid picture of scientific activity, by demonstrating in a practical way how science is striving to improve the conditions of everyday life. To this end, he will pay visits to many scientific institutions-university and commercial research laboratories, Government Departments, agricultural research stations, hospitals, and psychological institutions. In addition, he will bring to the microphone scientific workers in different fields, who will explain what they are doing and discuss their problems with Mr. Huxley.
The third of the new Music Hall programmes promises to keep well up to the level of its predecessors. Nelson Keys , broadcasting for the first time since the Radiolympia revue, brings a familiar personality and new material. Hetty King, most virile of male impersonators, is another broadcasting favourite of long standing. A very welcome newcomer to the microphone is that grand Cockney comedian, Charles Austin ; since the sight of a dismantled police station for sale in Shoreditch in 1908 gave him the idea, his famous sketch, ' P.C. Parker,' has been running continuously. It was first presented on May 18, 1908, at Collins's Music Hall, Islington, and it holds ' capacity' records for that house, the Surrey Theatre, and the Empire, Edmonton; Parker's ' cut-price' Police Station, complete with Inspector, Sergeant, Gouty Man and Murderer enters on a new era of popularity tonight. Scott and Whaley, remembered by their successes in The Kentucky Minstrels broadcasts, contribute the clever cross-talk without which no music-hall programme would be complete. The standard of straight duet singing set by this series is well maintained by Robert Naylor , the musical comedy star, and Josie Fearon. Alec McGill and Gwen Vaughan , chattering cheerfully to an irrelevant piano, are invariably good value. The singing and dancing of the Eight Step Sisters, a departure heartily endorsed by the majority of listeners, give the bill the right music-hall temperature, aided and abetted by the B.B.C. Theatre Orchestra.
