This afternoon's broadcast takes the place of the usual Concert Lesson for schools. Two specially written interludes will give a glimpse of the part played by music in the court life of two English monarchs of former days-Queen Elizabeth and George I. The scene of the first interlude is laid in the Palace of Whitehall in the year 1564, the second on the River Thames in the summer of 1717.

Splitting a Taxi by Two Lawyers
Just a year ago much surprise was created by a widely discussed legal appeal which decided that for several persons to hire a taxi, agreeing to share the expense, was an offence under the Road Traffic Act of 1930. This case and others bring up the general question of little-known legal fields in which even the most conscientious citizen is liable unwittingly to go astray. Before the microphone this afternoon, two lawyers will discuss a point of interest to everybody.

Here is a third edition of ' London Pie', with a Coronation flavour. Like the second edition broadcast in February, it is to be heard by listeners at home as well as those in the Empire to whom it is primarily broadcast. Among the amusing items is a sketch in which a Lancashire man up in London for the Coronation gets his hair cut, another is written round a canteen at a London garage where the busmen meet, and there is a skit on Coronation crowds. ' London Pie ' is so topical, witty, tuneful, and full of good numbers, that this third edition should deserve a fourth.

During the last two or three years Constant Lambert has shown himself to be one of the most gifted of the younger school of British conductors. His association with ballet goes back to the days of Diaghilev when the latter commissioned him to write
Pomona, the music of which will be heard this evening. For some years now Lambert has been conductor of Sadler's Wells ballet, with which he has accomplished fine work.

If the third Baron Sackville had not lent two chairs to the Office of Works for the Coronation of King George V and Queen Mary, and if his daughter, the well-known broadcaster, the Hon. V. Sackville-West, then a girl of nineteen, had not happened to sit next to the head of the Office of Works at a dinner party and shot a bow at a venture with all the courage of youth, she would never have witnessed the Coronation Service of 1911. Her description, as one would expect from a winner of the Hawthornden Prize, will be distinguished by its literary quality in presenting a picture of a ceremony exactly the same in detail and significance as the one that takes place tomorrow, although coaches bringing peers and peeresses to the Abbey were many and motors were few.
