Every Thursday afternoon at this time between now and Easter there will be an unrehearsed discussion between three or four talkers. The subject-matter of these discussions will be very wide and will range from current political issues to sport, from law to social affairs. The discussions themselves will be unrehearsed and without script, but in order to avoid useless arguments at cross purposes the speakers will have arranged beforehand what ground they consider relevant and what they will leave out.
In most instances the speakers will be anonymous and will represent nobody save themselves, so that what they say may have the vitality of personal opinions.
The subjects of discussions will not normally be announced in advance, since it is desirable to make them as topical as possible.
(Solo violoncello, PIERRE FOURNIER )
Saint-Saen's 'Cello Concerto No. 1 in A minor was composed in 1872 and first performed at a Paris Conservatoire concert in the following year. In its construction it shows the influence of Liszt, for it is in one continuous movement, consisting of three sections that in outline correspond to the three movements of classical procedure. But these sections are all thematically related to each other: the music is almost entirely based on the thematic material announced in the opening allegro section.
Beethoven himself conducted the first performance of the seventh symphony on December 8, 1813. The concert was in aid of wounded Austrian soldiers. In the same programme was the Battle Symphony ', in which was introduced Maelzel's mechanical instrument, the Panharmonicon. Playing in the orchestra were many famous musicians and composers, Romberg, Spohr, Mayseder, and Dragonetti were amongst the strings, Hummel and Meyerbeer (who always came in after the beat) played the drums, Moscheles had the cymbals, and Salieri kept time and order in the percussion department. In Austria the symphony scored a great success. In Germany, however, opinions were against it; everybody agreed that the composer must have been in a state of drunkenness during its composition.

' Follow Your Leader'
Collin Brooks is the editor of the Sunday Dispatch and sometime editor of The Yorkshire Post ; he is also the author of many books, ranging from works on economic history to detective stories, and novels of more serious character written over the pseudonym of ' Barnaby Brook. ' Tonight (in place of December 10 when his broadcast was postponed) he is going to talk about the way in which some books lead one on to other authors apparently remote ; for instance, Kipling to Surtees and Jane Austen ; Dickens to Smollett and Marryat. He will talk almost entirely about old books.
