Mr. J. A. SCOTT WATSON (Professor of Rural Economy in the University of Oxford)
Professor Scott Watson will sum up this evening on his survey of the countryside to inquire into the changes and crises that are affecting village life and agriculture, afforestation, fruit and hop growing, and kindred industries. He will devote his last broadcast of this series more to the future than to the past or present in an endeavour to find light among the darkness, and to indicate to listeners where it has been found.
Mr. J. A. Scott
. This is the first broadcast of Geraldo's new orchestra, which he has formed to replace his Tango Orchestra, his intention being to have a combination suitable for music other than the Tango. In the new orchestra are no fewer than twenty instruments, including three pianos.

JOHN MOREL (Baritone)
In the years immediately after the War, when the roll call of the younger musicians, who are to be responsible for the immediate future of British music, was being taken, the name of Ivor Gurney was prominent. Gurney was born in 1890, was educated first as a chorister at
Gloucester Cathedral and at the Royal College of Music under Stanford and Vaughan Williams. He soon established a. reputation as a writer of songs, and he was amongst the earliest of that group of song-writers who rallied to the standard of A. E. Housman , the author of ' A Shropshire Lad ', and set his lyrics to music of the folk-song order in what was then almost a convention with composers. Gurney's merit, however, is not confined to songs of a stereotyped character, and although many of his published songs are settings of Housman's lyrics, he has drawn upon the verses of many poets, in many periods, with a catholic discrimination.
