THE POPULAR BALLET of the Dance of the Hours from La Gioconda takes place, on the stage, in the Palace of Alvise, a Lord of the Inquisition. At the end of the ballet Alvise draws back the curtains which disclose to the horrified guests the apparently lifeless body of his wife Laura, who, he is persuaded, has deceived him.
Mr. ERNEST BEVIN
THE UTOPIAN and imaginative writer, the statesman and soldier, the theologian and philosopher,* these three have all given their views of the future of Britain ; this evening listeners are to hear those of a great Trade Unionist.

Bevin commenced organising work in the City of Bristol, and has been a Trade Union Official for twenty-three years. He has been engaged in all kinds of negotiations, and has represented the Trade Union Movement at both National and International Conferences.
He is a member of the General

A Play about the Brontes
Adapted for broadcasting by THE
THE RECENT revival of interest in Bronte biography found expression in several plays based on the life story of this famous family, of which Clemence Dane 's Wild Decembers (1932) was one of the most successful.
The romantic life of the Brontes lends itself to dramatic treatment. and Clemence Dane has very skilfully woven into her play most of the chief episodes in the life of this remarkable family. The result is a powerful and vivid drawing of each character and a highly satisfactory attempt to secure the atmosphere of the Haworth Parsonage.
It is, indeed, fascinating to contemplate Charlotte, Emily, and Anne carrying out their household duties with the orderliness and considered planning so characteristic of the period. Then after the day's duties are completed, the Rev. Patrick Bronte having retired to his study, the three girls seek seclusion in different parts of the house and, unknown to each other, fill up notebooks with poetry and prose In this manner ' Wuthering Heights and ' Jane Eyre ' were created.
