' A Knight of the Middle Ages '
Dramatic Interlude written by HUGH Ross WILLIAMSON
' Fair son, the first thing I teach thee is to mould thy heart to love God ... Let thy heart be gentle and compassionate towards the poor, the unfortunate, and the afflicted, and comfort and help them so far as in thee lies.' This is what St. Louis wrote for his son, to tell him how a true knight should behave. Today you are going to hear something of what it meant to be a knight in the Middle Ages and especially about one of the most famous knights of the fourteenth century — Bertrand du Guesclin.
' Man against Insects '
A. D. PEACOCK , D.Sc., F.R.S.E.
All over the world insect pests of many kinds threaten man's well-being. They are a menace to his food, his clothes, his shelter, and his health. They are carriers of disease not only among mankind, but among the plants we eat, so that plants, being inlected, perish.
The green fly is an enemy of the rose tree, and the black fly of the broad bean. A gardener may pull up his carrots and find them riddled with holes made by the grubs that prey on them, and the slug and the snail are murderers of the seedlings. In tropical countries white ants eat furniture, and a cloud of locusts is a modern as well as an ancient plague.
Man fights insect pests in many ways: by traps, by poison, by fire ; and even by setting one insect against another, or by encouraging insect-eating birds. But let it be remembered that all insects are not pests. Some, like wasps, feed their young on our insect enemies ; some, like bees, fertilise our flowers ; and some, like ladybirds, destroy the green fly that kills the rose.

Brahms wrote two sets of Variations in the Key of D major which he published in 1861, as opus 21. In his study of Brahms, William Murdoch points out that ' these two sets are rarely performed in public-rather are they looked upon as preparatory studies for the wonderful sets that were to come later, which were finally to stamp Brahms as the greatest master of variation form since Beethoven, and place him on the same level as Bach and Beethoven in wealth of ideas and individuality of conception. We also find in these two sets the beginning of a new technique-the big skips, the cross rhythms, the interweaving of parts, and the constant use of split octaves.'
