' Marmalade, Pancakes, and Savoury Pies'
Mrs. Arthur Webb
Mrs. Arthur Webb , who is to give a talk today on marmalades, pancakes, and savoury pies, has had a long and unusual training in cook-pry, and her experience and enthusiasm have made her a practical and Very sympathetic adviser.
In 1933 she gave the record number of 36 broadcasts on ' Economical Cookery', and the Pamphlets issued in connection with the talks had an enormous sale, while her correspondents ran into thousands. Each year since then Mrs. Webb has broadcast frequently, and her expert knowledge concerning the great variety of ways of preserving fruit and vegetables has proved most helpful to listeners.
She is a keen and accomplished gardener, and devotes much time to the cultivation of unusual vegetable.; and plants of value in the kitchen. She is to give a second cookery talk on February 20.

The Schwiller String Sextet :

Paul Talagrand (violoncello)
Dvorak's String Sextet in A was composed in 1878. The eminent Czech critic, Professor Sourek, sums up this work as follows: 'Each theme pulses with strong Slavonic life-blood ; each thought is coloured by national feeling and national ornamentation ; each folk mood is of the simplest and most sincere type ; not perhaps very profound, but full of a fascinating and fervent lyricism, moving in joyous and fiery rhythms. An outstanding feature, too, of the sextet is the fullness and brilliance of its melody, harmony, and sonority, to which the use of two violas and two 'cellos contributes substantially.'

The BBC Men's Chorus
Coleridge-Taylor's suite ' Othello ' was formed from the incidental music for Sir Herbert Tree's spectacular production of Shakespeare's play at
His Majesty's Theatre in 1911. It is interesting to note that No. 2, Children's Intermezzo, cost Coleridge-Taylor considerable trouble. Says W. C. Berwick Sayers, in his life of the composer: 'He was willing to try unto seventy times seven if necessary to accomplish his purposeWhat was wanted was a subdued chorus to be sung behind to convey a definite atmosphere to the scene. He made many attempts ; would bring a setting of it into the rehearsal, which Tree would pronounce to be good, but not quite what he wanted; and next day he would appear with an entirely new version, to meet with a like verdict.
This process was repeated until he almost despaired of producing the effect required. One day, however, when in the train on his way to Bath to conduct a concert, the unexpected light came, and at the first stop he left the train and telegraphed to Mr. Adolf Schmid: "I've got it ! " Next day the delicately beautiful chorus, which was so charming a feature of the play, was received at His Majesty's Theatre.'

by E. M. Delafield read by Heather Mclntyre
Here is a moving, almost perfect, little story, by the author of 'A Provincial Lady '-with a somewhat cynical ending. The atmosphere of a court, a trial scene (that scene which in play or story grips us most of all). There is one woman on the jury. The working of her mind is the one important thing. The man who killed the other man by accident because of a girl, should he be found guilty of manslaughter ? Did he mean to do it? Was it done in self-defence? If found not guilty, would he ever be likely to commit the same crime again ? Would he have died at all if he hadn't had an abnormally thin skull ? ... Never mind the law, what was she to do ? She had to do her duty, though her heart swayed her. There were other jurors too. What was the verdict brought in ?
