Anthony Kimmins served for some time in the Royal Navy, leaving it with the rank of Lieut.-Commander ; he was also a Pilot in the Fleet Air Arm. He scored his first big stage success in 1932 with While Parents Sleep, which ran at the Royalty for nearly a year. Since then he has written Night-Club Queen and Chase the Ace. He has also written films, directed them, and plaved in them, so that it would be difficult to find a better guide to what goes on ' behind the screens '.

Camp fires have been burning on the Karroo since March 19, but it is just possible that some listeners have missed the earlier broadcasts. If so, they should picture a party of Boer farmers camping on the Karroo-the vast, flat, dry, South African plain, relieved only by small hills-to shear and sort their sheep, and having a night sing-song round the fire.
The programmes include Afrikaans folk songs, the origin of which is obscure. The songs seem to have been derived from Dutch, French-Huguenot, and German settlers, with a certain influence from the native races. Their flavour is quite unique.

Prelude, The Tempest
Sibelius has written a considerable amount of incidental music to plays, among which is the music to Shakespeare's The Tempest that was written for a production of the play in 1926 at the Royal Theatre, Copenhagen. The published version of the music is divided into three sections: The Prelude, a Suite of nine pieces for full orchestra, and another Suite of eight pieces for small orchestra.
The Prelude, which is fairly well known in England, illustrates the opening storm in the play. Although it is a subject which has been treated by innumerable composers, it is a remarkable fact that Sibelius procures the most picturesque effects in an extraordinarily original manner.

Symphony No. 2, in D i. Allegretto; 2. Andante, ma rubato ; 3. Vivacissimo-Lento e suave; 4. Finale : Allegro moderato
The Symphony No. 2 in D, composed in 1902, shows Sibelius striking out on new lines. Although this symphony is cast in the usual four movements, each movement, particularly the first, is designed for the most part on new principles of musical form. Instead of the announcement of two or three self-contained melodies that are developed and then restated, Sibelius begins with melodic fragments and then proceeds to combine them into a melodic whole in the course of the movement. The procedure is really the reverse of the classical and romantic methods of symphonic construction.
