Herr MAX KROEMER
The idea of this extra talk is to shorten the long interval between Herr Max Kroemer 's last broadcast of the Winter Term (on December 19) and his first of the Spring Term (on January !)). This evening's talk will be devoted principally to revision, and beginners are invited to start the German Course now, as, with some extra study and perseverance, they will bo able to catch up without much difficulty. Five double-sided records of the first ten lessons from the Reader, recorded by Herr Kroemcr , are now obtainable. These, with the help of the Text Book and Pamphlet, obtainable from the B.B.C. Publications Department, and from booksellers, will tell beginners all they want to know.

A Musical Comedy
Adapted from a P. G. WODEHOUSE story by JOHN WATT
Music by KENNETH LESLIE-SMITH
Lyrics by HENRIK EGE
Orchestral arrangements by SYDNEY BAYNES
Les huit Casino Girls... THE EIGHT STEP SISTERS
Most of the action of the play takes place on the Island of Mervo in the Mediterranean
THE B.B.C. THEATRE ORCHESTRA and CHORUS
Conducted by SYDNEY BAYNES
Produced by JOHN WATT
This is a musical adaptation for broadcasting of P. G. Wodehouse 's story, ' The Prince and Betty ', which is a simple little love story packed in a tight little plot. The hero, John Maude , has been brought up by an uncle in ignorance of the fact that he is really Prince John, rightful Prince of Mervo, an island in the Mediterranean, which has declared itself a republic and which an unscrupulous financier, Benjamin Scobell , has tried to turn into a second Monte Carlo without immediate success. The idea occurs to Scobell to gain publicity by making Mervo a monarchy again ; to which end he sends for the prince and decides to marry him to his stop-daughter Betty. It is authentic ' Wodehouso ' that John Maude , or the Prince, should already have met and fallen in love with Betty. But that is the beginning, not the end of the story, for P. G. Wodehouse 's apparent simplicity is never artless. His craft and that of his adaptor go to the making of that rara avisa musical comedy with a plot. The lyrics aro delightful : especially the opening chorus of a smart-set ' do ' -' What a crowd ! What a crush ! What a party ! ' and the duet by John and Betty—' Somehow, I feel love can't be real'.
