© ' History in the Making'
K. C. BOSWELL
The first broadcast this term of ' History in the Making' has been designed to emphasise the principal aims of this series. These are to encourage listeners to see the other point of view, get down to facts, and trace causes. This introductory broadcast finds three people-K. C. Boswell , an elementary school teacher, and a somewhat loutish young man-in a railway carriage together. The three discuss what is happening in the world, and how these happenings can be understood by the layman. School broadcaster, school history teacher, and a member of the public who has not troubled to inform himself on affairs, are thus enabled to demonstrate the effectiveness of the course's aims.

C. C. GADDUM
In the opening broadcast of the term Mr. Gaddum will talk about two common English spiders, the cross or garden spider, and the wolf spider. He will describe how the web or snare is built, and how the web of the garden spider can be distinguished from that of the house spider. Finally he will describe some experiences he has had while watching the family life of the common English spider.
Teachers will find it useful to have illustrations or specimens of the common garden spider, a wolf spider, and a spider's web to show their pupils.

(from the Opera, Intermezzo)
Nearly fifty years have passed since Strauss startled the complacency of the world of music with his tone poem ' Don Juan '. Despite the lesson of Wagner, conservative critics, professional musicians, and plain men attacked Strauss for being an extremist and a cacophonist, and some even linked his name with Ibsen and Maeterlinck because of the corruptness and indecency alleged to be found in his music ! Almost up to the War he was largely considered something of an enfant terrible.
The style and idiom of his music derive from Brahms, Liszt, and Wagner. He began as a loyal adherent of classical tradition, with Brahms as the figure-head. Apart from his great constructive skill, power of thematic development, and brilliant orchestral virtuosity, the eloquence and lyrical beauty of so many of his themes and the rhythmic vitality of the music as a whole are features that have an immediate and vivid appeal.
