THE B.B.C. THEATRE ORCHESTRA

THE PROGRAMME this evening is memorable for the fact that Henry Hall is to top the bill. This is his first appearance in Variety, apart from Olympia, where his success was so great that the actual record taken of his act showed three minutes and five seconds of applause after he had made his speech. He is to appear this evening as a grand finale to his second year with the B.B.C.
And what a programme! Layton and Johnstone make a welcome reappearance after a three month's absence. Scott and Whaley back again. Frank Coleman with his silver voice, and Julian Rose with his Hebrew stories.
Old friends with new entertainment.
The Eight Step Sisters, one of them a singer now. And last, but not least, Tessie O'Shea , who has nine years' experience on the stage, though she is not yet twenty-one.
Weather Forecast, Second General News Bulletin
NO ONE can possibly look back on a week of more varied interests than ' Dick ' Sheppard, as he is known to thousands, for he might well be called the world's godfather. Nobody yet turned to him for counsel and sympathy and help without effect. His human side is as characteristic as his amazing courage in fighting constant sickness in the last ten years.
It is well known that he was vicar of St. Martin-in-the-Fields from 1919 to 1927, for he made it the best-known church in England. It is not so well known that he was one of the very first ministers of religion to see what broadcasting might mean to the Church. He was a prophet in his own generation, and really set the tone of broadcast services.
He is interested in simple things and simple people; when he had to give up St. Martin-in-the-Fields he found it ' no fun to chuck all the things one cares for.' That is the man who is to say something tonight about his thoughts and emotions, his personal reactions to the week just over.

IT is scarcely necessary to remind attentive listeners that John Ansell is numbered among those early broadcasters who attained popularity in the first year and have retained it ever since. Besides having conducted a great deal before the microphone in the early days, London theatre audiences know that he is a familiar figure in the rostrum at many of the West End theatres, notably the Winter Gardens Theatre in the days when George Grossmith and Leslie Henson were delighting London. Besides conducting, however, Ansell is one of the best and most successful of light music composers. Several times in recent years a complete programme of his works has been broadcast.
