Tracing History Backwards ib—' Industry'
K. C. BOSWELL
Last week Commander Stephen King-Hall told listeners all about modern 'ndustry, and today Mr. K. C. Boswell is to tell them about industry as it was in the seventeenth, eighteenth, and nineteenth centuries. The sounds of the hand-loom and of the spinning bobbins, such as characterised the cotton industry at the time of the Industrial Revolution, have been recorded for use in this talk at Ditchling in Sussex, where many old industries survive. These will be contrasted with the din of a great modern Lancashire cotton mill.

2—' Fruit and Seeds '
C. C. GADDUM
Today G. C. Gaddum is to discuss the real meaning of the words ' Fruits and Seeds ' ; the purpose of the fruit, such as the protection of the young developing seed ; the various methods adopted by plants to prevent animals from eating the fruit before the seeds are ripe ; and lastly the different kinds of fruit and the seed or seeds they contain.
Teachers would find it helpful to have ready for practical illustration either specimens or drawings of the following: an acorn, orange, horse chestnut, plum, and pea-pod.

THE CHARLES WOODHOUSE QUARTET:
Charles Woodhouse (violin); Walter Price (violin); Ernest Tomlinson (viola); Edward Robinson (violoncello)
This is one of the famous early set of string quartets, six in number, in which the youthful Beethoven gave at the age of thirty such emphatic and unmistakable assurance to the musical world of his intention to surpass all that had previously been accomplished in works of this class. Although they are all in the style of the composer's first period, reflecting the influence of his models, Haydn and Mozart, it is possible to point in each one to passages, not to say whole movements, which neither of those great masters could conceivably have written, and which proclaim the opening of a new chapter in the history cf the string quartet.

The Free-born Briton
Captain H. BALFOUR , M.C., M.P.
The Englishman is ' free '. What are the extents and the limitations of this much-envied traditional freedom ? How does the political independence of the British compare with the condition of ' Dictator '-ruled countries ? What is the relationship of the judge and law-maker ? How far can a Habeas Corpus appeal prevent the illegal detention of a citizen
These are some of the questions to be discussed by Captain Balfour, Conservative Member for the Isle of Thanet, in this, the first talk of a series of twelve, dealing with the British constitution as it is today. He is to give the next three talks in addition. Listeners will remember his many broadcasts on ' The Week in Westminster '.

The programme arranged and conducted by STANFORD ROBINSON
Planned on similar lines to the ' Old Music Halls' series, this new series of ' Old Ballad Concerts' arranged by Stanford Robinson promises to be equally successful. The rich store of one-time popular ballads (by such composers as Sullivan, Stephen Adams , Cowen, and Blumenthal) that used to be heard at St. James's Hall, Queen's Hall, and Royal Albert Hall , will form the basis of this series. From time to time it is hoped to bring to the microphone some favourite old singer of ballads and perhaps one or two of the composers.

A Psycho-analytical Approach to Social
Introductory Talk by The Very Rev. W. R. INGE , K.C.V.O., F.B.A., D.D.
We have heard much about the wonders of modern science, though of late our doubts may have increased as to our ability to use the results to our best advantage. Violence, crime, and war seem likely to benefit unduly by their aid. The problem appears to lie within ourselves ; it is psychological.
Nearly every advance in psychological knowledge has arisen from the study of mental disease and the wish to cure it. The psychologist has treated the individual patient. But in the same way that clinical medicine has led to preventive medicine and public hveiene, so have the advances in psychology been applied in recent years to the wider field of social problems.
Particularly active in this connection has been the Freudian school of psychoanalysis, and in this series a psycho-analyst will survey the problem. Finally he will suggest how it might he dealt with. Tonight, in an introductory talk,
Dr. Inge will discuss the nature of social problems and to what extent an understanding of their psychological roots can produce good results.
