* South Africa: Gold-mining on the Rand '
Today listeners are to hear about the romance of gold mining on the Rand-which is the romance of Johannesburg. They will hear about this modern city which in fifty years has grown out of the bare veld of the Southern Transvaal, under the ' ridge of white waters'. They will hear of mines and towns strung on the main reef road for a hundred miles on each side of the city ; of the ' reef' as a magnet drawing people and things from all over South Africa ; of black workmen from the kraals ; of life in a mine ; and of the most up-to-date mining equipment and organisation in the world.

Tolstoy's ' War and Peace '
E. M. FORSTER
The writing of ' War and Peace ' was begun by Tolstoy in the autumn of 1863, and the Epilogue was not completed till 1869. The book won an immediate success. The whole of educated Russia acknowledged its author to be a great master.
Today Sixth Forms are to hear all about this epic of Russia from E. M. Forster , himself a brilliant man of letters. His book,' A Passage to India ', won him in 1925 two of the prizes most cherished by authors-the Prix Fetnina Vie Heureuse and the James Tait Black Prize. Mr. Forster today gives his first talk to Sixth Forms, but he is a well-known broadcaster in the evening programmes, having talked on new books, and in ' Writers of Today ' and ' Seven Days Hard ', apart from a radio talk on D. H. Lawrence.

Few modern composers write their third symphonies at twenty-five ; they are more likely to wait, as Brahms did, till middle age before writing their first. The writing of symphonies has become such a serious business since Beethoven's day, and still more since Brahms's, that a youthful composer hardly dares embark on it at all. It is a a matter for ripe years, matured wisdom, and profound thought.
But that was not GIazunov's view of the symphony. He had written his first while still a schoolboy and produced successors at frequent intervals, if not quite with the prolificacy of the pre-Beethovenian symphonists. This Symphony in D major, completed in 1890, is thoroughly characteristic of Glazunov's symphonic output in general : lyrical rather than thoughtful.

ARTHUR CRANMER (baritone)
SAMUEL DUSHKIN (violin)
Arthur Cranmer has distinguished himself in every branch of singing. He began his career at Huddersfield as soloist in Bantock's Omar Khayyam , and in the days of the British National Opera Company he was one of its principals, singing the title roles in Parsifal and The Barber of Seville. Mr. Cranmer has also sung at the Three Choirs Festival and has broadcast on several occasions from Hilversum, in Holland.
Samuel Dushkin, who has of late years given many recitals with Stravinsky, whose Violin Concerto was specially written for him, was born in Russia in 1898. But when only a few years old he went to live in New York He studied the violin both there and in Paris, and in 1924 he made his debut in America, playing a concerto with the New York Symphony Orchestra conducted by Walter Damrosch.
