Sir Henry, knighted in the recent Honours List, has been Rector of the Imperial College of Science and Technology since 1929 and. Chairman of the Aeronautical Research Committee since 1933.

It is a curious fact that Mendelssohn complained that the ' Italian '
Symphony, completed in 1831, cost him some of the bitterest moments in his life, and in consequence it was not published until after his death, in 1847. Yet it is one of his finest works, perfect in workmanship and full of melodic charm and vital energy.

A Programme on the Mines and Miners of Cornwall
By A. K. Hamilton Jenkin with Ross Hutchinson , Billy Polton , George Holloway , Merrick Lucas , Bernard Fishwick , Jean Wickenden ,
Barbara Edwards , Tom Jones , and recordings of a visit to a tin mine
Produced by Francis Dillon
In the first part of this broadcast listeners are to hear a brief history of the mines and miners of Cornwall from the earliest times to the present day, interspersed with records made by old miners themselves, who will thus be speaking to listeners.
In the second part they will hear recorded a visitor's impressions of going underground, and his conversation with the men. They will hear the deafening roar of a rock drill, and on the surface the roar of the ' stamps ' (machines that crush the ore to sand, out of which tin is extracted). The broadcast will give a picture of an industry peculiar to Cornwall, the chief source of supply of tin in Europe, with a history going back 2,000 years.
An article on the subject, by A. K. Hamilton Jenkin , will be found on page 18.

' The Krakatoa Eruption, 1883 '
R. J. Dalby
In August, 1883, R. J. Dalby was on a small clipper barque, Hope, and witnessed the terrible eruption of Krakatoa, a volcano of evil reputation in the Straits of Sunda, between Java and Sumatra, which was again showing alarming activity only nine years ago.
On Monday, August 27, in the year of the catastrophe, the peak was blown eight hundred miles away ; ashes obscured the sun over a stretch of a thousand miles ; over an area of fourteen square miles all living creatures were burnt to death or swallowed into the bowels of the earth; whole forests disappeared, and many islands with their inhabitants vanished. The loss of life ran into hundreds of thousands. Mr. Dalby is to tell listeners of his experiences on what he describes as the blackest Monday he ever knew.
The Busch String Quartet:
Adolf Busch (violin) ; Gosta Andreasson (violin) ; Karl Doktor (viola) ; Hermann Busch (violoncello)
For technical mastery, musical imagination, and depth of feeling Beethoven's last group of five string quartets is generally acknowledged to be the crowning achievement of the master's life. The Op. 130, in B flat, consists of six movements all of which are concentrated in thought and highly intellectualised in treatment. Two movements, particularly, stand out for their extraordinary beauty-the exquisite Alia danza tedesca and the deeply moving Cavatina. The original finale was the ' Grosse Fugue ', but, owing to its length and complexity, the publisher, Artaria, and certain friends prevailed upon Beethoven to have it issued as a separate work and to substitute the present less formidable allegro.
