Conductor, T. H. Morrison Among Sir Hamilton Harty's many fine compositions is the Irish
Symphony, which is based on a number of Irish airs. This evening two movements are to be heard. The second, ' The Fair Day', is described by the composer as follows : ' On Fair days the streets would be full of kicking horses and swearing, bargaining men. All was dust and men, but in the marketplace, once it was reached, there were joys and delights. Then there 'was the recruiting sergeant, all martial and glorious, and gay cap streamers, offering new shillings to all who would take them. In the evening we would see him leading off his troops, while the village band marched in front playing "The girt I left behind me ", very inaccurately, but with fervour.' The third movement is slow and mournful, telling of wandering in the bills and of a house where a lament was being cried over a young dead girl. Her sweetheart told how he had gone away to try to make his fortune, and how she waited for him, but when he returned, it was to find that she had died.

2.5 Stories from World History
' Vasco da Gama reaches India '
A dramatic interlude written by WRAY HUNT
Today's broadcast is about an explorer named Vasco da Gama. Like Marco Polo , who lived two hundred years before him, he set out .to visit the East. But instead of travelling overland for most of the journey, as Marco Polo had done, he went all the way by sea. In the interlude you will hear about some of the dangers he had to face on his voyage, and about the people he met when at last he reached India.

When Charles Darwin 's views on the struggle for existence were first read, people seized on the idea of the whole living world, even the human part of it, as a jungle wherein living things fought and killed like tigers. There is, however, another side of the question-the instinct of many animals to work harmoniously together ; think of the beehive, the ant's nest, and the buffalo herd. So in the history of man, efforts by the single individual, warring against the world, have given place to efforts by groups-first the family, then the tribe, and then the state, while today man is aspiring to Commonwealths and a League of Nations. Have these been brought about by the law of the jungle ? If not, how has nature worked so that these conditions have come about ?

A Programme from
Northern Ireland in which will be heard some of the people who live in the Sperrin Mountains
An excerpt from
' A Midsummer Night's Dream' played in Tyrone dialect and Fairy Lore
Simplicity is the key-note of this programme, which has been designed to give listeners an impression of how people live in Ulster, especially in some of the lonelier districts.
First, listeners will be taken to the Sperrin Mountains where they will hear a farmer, a gamekeeper, an embroideress, and a country fiddler. Next they are to hear a scene from A Midsummer Night's Dream in Tyrone dialect, which, it is claimed, is almost identical with the speech of Shakespeare's England. And finally they will hear two Ulster people who believe that there are still fairies in Ireland. Both of them come from country districts, and have strange experiences to tell.
