Mrs. Edward Harvey
Listeners are to hear an account of a typical week in the life of a woman who keeps a small general shop in a working-class district of Liverpool. Tess Harvey is the wife of Edward Harvey , who told listeners about his change of jobs in ' Swapping Horses ' on Thursday. It was the result of his losing a good job in one of the dead industries of Merseyside that he and Mrs. Harvey became shop-keepers. She is to talk of life from her side of the counter, and the very human and often very poor people whom she meets on the other side. They come into her shop for the bare essentials of life, and the thriftiness of their orders tells its own story.

The Disc-breaking Competition
A commentary on the final heats of the Team Sharpshooter
Tournament by Captain E. H. Robinson from Alexandra Palace
Listeners are to hear a commentary on the sharp-shooting item at forty yards range for the Patriotic Shield, which is one of the items in the National Small-Bore Rifle Competition, organised by the Society of Miniature Rifle Clubs. Clubs throughout the country may each enter one team of three persons. The target consists of twelve breakable white discs arranged in two sets of six. Teams are drawn in pairs, and the two teams lie down together. The team that first destroys all the discs or has broken the most on the word Cease ' is the winner of that particular heat.

' Pethau Digri '
('Things that amuse one'—
Kate Roberts )
Led by Laurance Turner
Conducted by Julian Clifford
Smetana (1824-1884) was the pioneer of Czech national music. His cycle of six symphonic poems collectively entitled ' My Country ' is, as the title suggests, in praise of Bohemia.
' Bohemia's Woods and Fields ' is the fourth symphonic poem of the cycle. The music sets out to describe a traveller's sensations on his arrival in the country. He meets a village maiden. At noon he rests in the woods, and then proceeds onwards until he comes to a village. A hymn reminds him of the piety of the peasants, and a jolly dance suggests their simple sense of fun.
