' Africa and the Black Peoples '
A dramatic interlude written for broadcasting by HUGH Ross WILLIAMSON
Listeners are to hear about the people who live on the great continent of Africa. Most of them are dark-skinned people who we call Negroes, but there are many different tribes among them. In the seventeenth century white people came to settle in the southern part of Africa, and as time went on they gradually spread northwards. Listeners will hear, first, what some of the black people thought about the newcomers, then about the terrible wrong done by white traders when they shipped many of the Negroes across the sea as slaves.
' Life conquers the Land '
A. D. PEACOCK , D.Sc., F.R.S.E.
Contrast living conditions in water with those on land and you will note wetness,denseness, and dissolved air as against dryness and free air. Land plants and animals must depend upon their own structure to support their weight in such a light medium as air ; and must be able to breathe the dry oxygen of the air. All the evidence goes to prove that living things originated in water, and that in course of time some were able to forsake the water and gain a foot-hold on land. How this came to pass is Professor Peacock's subject today.

A Wagner Concert
Undoubtedly, Wagner was one of the greatest and possibly the most extraordinary figures in the history of music. By grim and ruthless determination and the power of an almost hypnotic personality he imposed the fruits of his genius upon an antagonistic and unwilling world. The opposition he fought against was partly of his own making and partly due to the revolutionary characteristics of his art, which had something new and vital to say. But today Wagner's music is accepted by everybody and he has become one of the most popular composers of the nineteenth century, and, possibly, of all times.
This evening Toscanini, who is one of the greatest of all Wagner conductors, is presenting a programme of some of the high lights of Wagner's orchestral music : starting with the youthful ' Faust' Overture, which clearly shows what a mighty composer of symphonic poems Wagner could have been, and ending with the great Funeral March in Götterdämmerung, which displays the master's genius at his most incandescent.
