The scene of the poem on which Dvorak's The Noonday Witch is based is a little cottage where a peasant wife is busy preparing the midday meal ; in a corner her child is playing, and her husband is at work in the fields. The child grows uneasy and screams, and as it will not be pacified, the mother in anger calls out to the Noon Witch to come and take it. In a moment the door opens, and a little old witch enters, crying out ' Give me the child '. The mother, in real fear, snatches up her infant, but the Noon Witch steals ever nearer and nearer with horrible hands stretched out towards the baby, until at last the mother falls swooning to the ground. Midday strikes and the Witch vanishes ; the father comes back cheerfully from his work, and is horror-struck to find his wife senseless on the floor, clasping a dead child.

' Love me, Love my Dog'
VAL ROSING with his Melody Makers
Compere, BRYAN MICHIE
Audrey Hyslop has had an extraordinarily varied career since her name first became known to London in Pelissier's Follies. Gilbert and Sullivan operas in South Africa, music-hall work here, there, and everywhere in impersonations of a charwoman, concert-party work in India- When the Bombay broadcasting station was opened, she was a sort of stand-by-songs, character sketches, monologues ... and this evening in a monologue she is to broadcast for the first time in England. Slices of everyday life, the type of people seen in the park, people with dogs all over the world, go to make up her amusing Love me, Love my Dog '.
-Listeners will welcome the return of Val Rosing , Henry Hall 's first vocalist with the BBC Dance Orchestra.
He is to bring with him to the microphone his Melody Makers, and will
introduce to listeners a new radio singer in this country-Suzanne , McClay, who is just over from Paris, where she has been singing in cabaret. She has a colourful, husky voice, and Bryan Michie believes her to have an ideal microphone personality.
Finally there will be a surprise act to wind up this Variety triple bill.
