Hamish MacCunn (1868-1916), one of the most gifted composers that Scotland has produced, studied at the Royal College of Music under Sir Hubert Parry until 1886. In the following year he came into real prominence as a composer with his concert overture ' Land of the Mountain and the Flood '. The poetic basis of the music is the passage from Scott's ' Lady of the Lake ' (Canto vi), which begins :â€”
O Caledonia ! stern and wild, Meet nurse for a poetic child !
Land of brown heath and shaggy wood I Land of the mountain and the flood I Land of my sires ! what mortal hand Can e'er untie the filial band
That knits me to thy rugged strand ?

A description of the play by C. B. FRY
Broadcast from Lord's
C. B. Fry, who retired from first-class cricket in 1921, still holds the record of six consecutive centuries in first-class cricket. He was not only a triple Blue at Oxford (cricket, Association football, and athletics) and only failed to get a Rugby Blue through a sprained ankle, but also a brilliant scholar. He made his name as a batsman while playing for Sussex, and his partnerships with ' Ranji ' are of immortal memory ; he afterwards played for Hampshire, and captained England throughout the triangular Test Matches of 1912. Few men are more versatile. He has been a successful journalist and novelist, founded C. B. Fry 's Magazine, was part-inventor of diabolo, scored nearly one hundred centuries in first-class cricket, held for years the world's record for the long jump, and has been Honorary Director of the Naval School training ship Mercury since 1908.

This evening. R. Carpendale, who broadcast an introductory talk on the Olympic Games from Garmisch in February, is to discuss the national sport of America-baseball-which is increasing in popularity over here. A form of this game has been played for many years in Wales, while after the war interest in true American baseball was stimulated by the presence of American soldiers in this country.
The game has been played for the last four years in the north of England, where there are as many as sixty-five teams and two professional leagues. It was played in the south for the first time last summer, and this season there is to be a real push to promote baseball in the south in a big way.
