Ⓓ C. H. MIDDLETON and A. D. C. LE SUEUR
This afternoon C. H. Middleton is to bring to the microphone A. D. C. Le Sueur who is on the staff of the Royal Agricultural College, Cirencester, and an expert on forestry. Besides being the author of many publications on the subject, he advises on the care of London's trees. He and Middleton are to discuss mainly the planting of trees to form screens in the garden to shut out unsightly objects, and the difficult and little understood subject of pruning.

Antonio Vivaldi , the celebrated Venetian violinist composer, who was born during the latter half of the seventeenth century, wrote many trios and sonatas for stringed instruments. He also composed a number of concertos, including the twelve entitled ' Concerti a quattro', early examples of the classical concerto form which was later to be developed by Bach. Handel, and finally Mozart.
Goossens's Fantasy Quartet was written in 1915 and dedicated ' to my friends the London String Quartet'. '. Philip Heseltine (Peter "Warlock) has recorded that in 1916 the quartet ' was sent in MS. to Frederick Delius , who pronounced it the best thing he had seen from an English pen ; and it is not improbable that the new resources revealed and suggested by this work may have served to break down his apparent aversion to quartet writing, since his latest work has been cast in this form '.
Bohuslav Martinu was bom in 1890 at Policka in Bohemia. He studied the violin at the Prague Conservatoire and later became a member of the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra, with which he was associated until 1923. Having studied composition under Joseph Suk , Martinu then went to study under Albert Roussel in Paris, where he has lived ever since. In addition to a number of important orchestral works,

An appeal on behalf of THE HEDINGHAM SCOUT TRAINING AND EMPLOYMENT SCHEME, by CHRISTOPHER STONE ,
The Hedingham Scout Training and Employment Scheme was started in 1929 with one camp at Hedingham Castle and eighteen men. Today the organisation has five camps, each with forty men under the supervision of a Rover Scout Leader.
The object of the scheme is to take unemployed single men between the ages of eighteen and twenty-five from the Distressed Areas, to build up their strength and train them for all kinds of indoor and outdoor private service. Or, if they express the wish, every effort is made to get them into one of the Services or into industrial employment.
No fewer than 600 men a year are passing through the camps at the present time, but the organisation could deal with at least 1,000 if the money were available.

A Talks Feature by C. V. SALMON, built up round the impressions of an observer of the Hull Trawling Industry
This item was given in September as the penultimate broadcast in ' Sea Harvests ', but it is a broadcast complete in itself. It will be remembered that C. V. Salmon went up to Hull, made various records, and came to the microphone on his return to describe what he saw there of the Trawling Industry. Today he is to repeat his talk, and listeners will actually hear, among other things, sounds of the ]aunching of ships, of the shooting and hauling of a trawl, of the noise of an ice-crusher.

Rossini at the age of twenty-eight was already a highly successful composer of operas ; he had been at it for nearly ten years and had already to his credit between twenty and thirty operas. Some of his operas, however, were failures ; one in particular entitled Mahomet II had no success. Rossini, however, was not a man to waste anything unless he could help it, so when, six years later, he wanted an overture for his opera, The' Siege of Corinth, he borrowed it from Mahomet. Both operas are now no more, but the overture, a perfectly good One, keeps their memory alive.
