The Time Signal and Weather Forecast will be radiated by all transmitters this morning at 10.15. Listeners will thus be able to set their watches before the relay of the Service from the Cenotaph. They are particularly asked to make sure that their sets are accurately adjusted before the Service begins at 10.30.
So far as the BBC is concerned, no objection will be raised to the public rediffusion of the broadcast of the Service from the Cenotaph.

The Practice and Science of Gardening
—' The Cultivation of Bush and Soft
F. W. Costin , N.D.H., F.R.H.S.
This is the second of Mr. Costin's talks in this series on the cultivation of fruit trees. Last week he discussed apples, pears, plums, and cherries ; today he is to deal with the soft fruits : black and red currants, gooseberries, and raspberries. He will describe the character of certain varieties, and the influence of these characters on cropping, disease, and pest resistance. He will deal with propagation, with methods and systems of planting, cultivation and management. Listeners will learn among other things how black currants are different from red and white currants : an especially important point to bear in mind when it comes to pruning-a subject Mr. Costin is to discuss next week.

A. B. CAMPBELL
Commander Campbell's previous extempore talk on the eccentricities of seamen was so popular that he returns to the microphone this evening to give yet another broadcast of the same kind. He is a speaker gifted with an extraordinarily fluent delivery, and he experiences no difficulty at all in talking without the aid of notes or a script.
E. Martin Browne
To get their ideas on to the stage, dramatists employ certain accepted methods, or write in certain ' conventions 'Ã¢ÂÂnaturalism, melodrama, poetic drama, expressionism. The producer must understand the convention in which he is working, and this evening E. Martin Browne will discuss the importance of this.
To illustrate his point, a scene from Toller's play Masses and Men will be played at the microphone, first naturally, and then in the expressionist manner. The use of a very modern convention will also be shown by playing a scene from Sydney Box's play The Self-Made Man.
Presented by the British Legion with a description of the scene by Lieut.-Commander R. Woodrooffe

Since 1929 it has been held under the auspices of the British Legion; representatives of local branches of the Legion from all parts of the country make up the audience, and stirring music and the singing of war-time songs distinguish this reunion of ex-Service men.

'... We are weak. Writing is difficult, but for my own sake I do not regret this journey which has shown that Englishmen can endure hardships, help one another, and meet death with as great fortitude as ever in the past.' These poignant words of Scott were found in a note-book when the search party discovered the bodies of the three explorers. The epic story of what went before is to be told this evening. An article on page II gives reminiscences of Scott's expedition from the recollections of the late H. G. Ponting , the official photographer to the Expedition.
