' How to detect Rickets '
By a DOCTOR
This is the first talk in a new series addressed to parents on the health and welfare of their children. The talks will be given by qualified medical men, and will deal with some common symptoms which, if neglected, may lead to serious consequences.
Today and again next week a doctor is to talk on how to detect rickets, and then two talks will be given on how to prevent this disease in young children.

This will be Eileen Joyce's first appearance before the microphone since her return a few weeks ago from an extended tour through Australia, Tasmania, and New Zealand. The tour was arranged by the Australian Broadcasting Commission. During the five or six months that Miss Joyce was touring she gave an average of three performances a week. Apart from solo recitals she also appeared in concertos, such as the Grieg in A minor and the Rachmaninov in C minor with seven different orchestras, including one at Wellington, New Zealand, which Dr. Malcolm Sargent conducted during his tour.
Symphony on a Mountaineer's song
Vincent d'Indy's ' Symphony on a Mountaineer's Song ', which was composed in 1886, is full of charming singable folk and folk-like melodies which are worked out deftly and with great interest to the musician. The orchestral texture is a model of clarity, and the colouring is both delicate and brilliant. And the rich variety of rhythm and mood are qualities that are strikingly attractive. Scored for a large modern orchestra including a brilliant and expressive piano part (which is a solo in the symphonic, not the concerto, sense of the term), this work is divided into three movements. The opening theme of the first movement played by the cor anglais over muted strings is the Mountaineer's Song, and it forms a kind of ' key-theme ' for the whole work. The slow movement is an exquisite pastoral lay, and the last movement is one of the merriest things in orchestral music. Those who delight in syncopation have a clever example here of its use in building up a swiftly-moving and scintillating ending.

Tonight is the first broadcast in this new series which aims at showing that though people of different nationalities speak different languages and have different customs and traditions, yet, being human, they are not so very different; and if they follow the same callings, astonishingly alike.
Each week listeners are to hear a member of some trade or profession in this country speaking of his life and work; and then they are to hear a member of a similar trade or profession in a foreign country speaking of his life and work.
To achieve this end Moray McLaren , of the BBC, has gone to the Continent to find representative speakers. This week he is in Paris, next week in Rome. Then he is to visit Vienna, Warsaw, Berlin, and Copenhagen, as he describes in his article on page 12, and listeners will hear a spokesman from each.
