A description of some of the Winter Sports included in the programme of The Winter Olympic Games.
On Thursday, February 6, the fourth Winter Olympic Games began at Garmisch-Partenkirchen in the Bavarian
This evening a Winter Sports enthusiast, R. D. S. Carpendale, co-operating with the German radio authorities, is to broadcast his impressions of the proceedings from a local studio. More than twenty nations, including Great Britain, are competing.
The sports are categorised under the headings of ski-ing, bobsleigh racing, speed and figure skating, and ice hockey.
Most listeners would like to have the opportunity of being at picturesque Garmisch-Partenkirchen to watch the Games. Carpendale's talk-a novelty, for it is the first time in the history of the BBC that the Winter Olympic Games have been broadcast-will give them the next best thing: a vivid description with expert comment.
Next Saturday, February 15, a commentary on the last period of one of the semi-final matches will be broadcast.

During the nineteenth century the Czechs produced three eminent composers-Smetana, Dvorak and Fibich.
Zdenko Fibich (1850-1900) was not so imbued with the national spirit as Smetana and Dvorak. His musical education had been essentially German. He wrote about 700 works, of which 350 short piano pieces, forming a kind of musical diary under the title of ' Moods, Impressions, and Memories ', are particularly noteworthy. The charming' Poem ', which is to be played this evening, belongs to this diary. It is well known as a violin solo and also as a waltz song.
