8—' Hamburg and the Elbe'
K. H. ABSHAGEN
The Elbe winds its way for over seven hundred miles from Czecho-Slovakia across the German Plain to the North Sea. On its northern bank is Hamburg, the largest sea-port on the continent of Europe. The city owes its origin to the fact that in 808 Charlemagne built a fortress on its site as a defence against the Slavs. Three years later, moreover, was established a church which made Hamburg an important centre of the evangelisation of northern Europe. The latter part of the nineteenth century, however, was the period during which Hamburg developed into its present large proportions. This afternoon Dr. K. H. Abshagen is to tell listeners of this interesting city of contrasts-the old town laced with narrow canals and the modern town with its shipyards and up-to-date housing schemes and architecture.
Senior Concert Lesson-4
' The Minuet'
THOMAS ARMSTRONG , D. Mus.
There is nothing more terrible than fire, and nobody can be too careful in trying to prevent it. Today Clifford Collinson , who has given so many broadcasts based on his experiences and adventures in all parts of the world, is to tell listeners a story he has written to show the danger of fire. If it breaks out, especially in the night when people are asleep, it calls for prompt action if those involved in it are to escape, and for heroism in those who try to save them.
'Fires and Fire Fighting'.
Members of the London Fire Brigade
(By permission of the L.C.C.)
Schools have listened to fiction, and now they are to hear fact. Various members of the London Fire Brigade arc to recount their duties and experiences. Listeners will hear a man who wears a gas-mask and penetrates smoke and fumes, a driver, and possibly others. And then Major Morris, Chief Officer of the London Fire Brigade, will say a few words about preventing fire and the best thing to do when a fire breaks out.
This talk is intended for members of sixth forms in secondary schools, and more particularly for boys and girls in their last year at school. The standard of the talk is intended to be much the same as that of the adult evening classes. It will differ from them, however, in certain respects. For instance, Mr. Harold Nicolson will address himself directly to school audiences, and classes may form ' listening groups' with their master or mistress as leader.

C. H. MIDDLETON
This evening C. H. Middleton is to talk on seasonable topics : doing the last of the clearing of the summer beds, digging and manuring and generally treating the soil ; sweeping up the last of the leaves and rolling the lawns, transplanting rose-trees, dividing and planting perennials, planting lilies, destroying the refuse and filling the November evenings with the sweet smell of a bonfire.
C. H. Middleton , who has been giving gardening talks on the air practically continuously for the last four years is featured in People You Hear' on page 15.

Sir RONALD STORRS , K.C.M.G., C.B.E.
Kitchener's death was as dramatic as his life. In June of 1916 he left England in H.M.S. Hampshire to visit Russia. An unseen mine caused disaster : the ship went down, almost with all hands,
Kitchener included. He was in Ireland in 1850, and began his career as a second lieutenant in the Royal Engineers. Later, in 1883, he was attached to the Egyptian Army-at a most propitious time, as it happened, for the Army was then being reconstructed under the command of British officers. His record throughout was brilliant. in 1892 he was appointed Sirdar, and a few years later he distinguished himself by crushing the Mahdists at Omdurman.
This evening Sir Ronald Storrs who was formerly Oriental Secretary to the British Agency in Egypt, will give listeners some personal memories of this great soldier.
