By a DOCTOR

Relayed from Peterborough Cathedral
DR. HARVEY GRACE is organist of Chichester Cathedral, but that by no means describes a very full life spent in the service of organists and organ music. His fellow artists know him as Editor of The Musical Times and as a brilliant writer on matters connected with the organ. That still is not all ; he is a great student of Bach; his writings on general musical subjects have both authority and distinction ; indeed, wherever music is treated seriously the influence of Dr. Harvey Grace is sure to be felt. Listeners in particular will know him from his compositions which frequently appear in the programmes and from his scholarly articles in The Listener.

' You and the Composer'
Sir WALFORD DAVIES
G. M. BOUMPHREY ..
LET IT BE stressed that this series is essentially of an open air nature, and designed to appeal to those who love the countryside and who might like to follow Mr. Boumphrey's wanderings. He gave his first talk in this series last Friday, and since then he has travelled the Fosse Way from Axminster as far as Cirencester, via Ilchester, Bath, and Malmesbury.
Features to be looked for in these talks are things seen on the way; something about the Roman occupation, how they opened up the country and planned towns ; something about roads and their uses ; about scenery, place-names or natural history; maps and how to read them ; new landmarks, and places to put up at on the way.
Many listeners will remember Mr.
Boumphrey's series ' The Man about the House ', which he broadcast in the autumn of 1932, and again his contributions to ' Design in Modem Life ', a feature of the spring programmes of 1933. Next week he will continue his journey along the Fosse Way from Cirencester to Lincoln, and again come to the microphone with an account of his wanderings.

The Story of a fantastic crime committed in the 4th Dimension
This play was broadcast in the Regional programme last night
'The Red Lantern'
By RICHARD HUGHES
THE STORY chosen in this series tonight is by one of the most versatile of our younger writers. Poetry, novels, stories, plays both for. the theatre and the microphone come with equal facility from his pen.
He is represented in Georgian poets,
1022, and other anthologies ; his The Sisters' Tragedy was performed both in London and New York, his Danger, broadcast in 1924, was the first play specially written for the purpose. But perhaps Richard Hughes is even better known for his novel, ' A High Wind in Jamaica ', which was as big a success as it was well reviewed.
It was set in the early days of steam navigation, and the adventures which some children had with real pirates were notable for the matter-of-fact attitude of the children. This imaginative phantasy, which did much to make the author's reputation, contained remarkable descriptions of a tornado and an earthquake in Jamaica.
