In this second suite from ' Music to a Child's Play', the first movement a march, is the longest and most elaborately worked out. In Little
Bells ' actual bells are included. In the third movement we are to suppose the ' Moths and Butterflies dancing in the sun, and in the fourth, ' Fountain Dance ', the sparking water is vividly presented to us Although in the fifth movement
'The Tame Bear' is for the most part well-mannered, we are here and there reminded that he is, nevertheless a bear and can still growl ; The
Wild Bears' bring the suite to an end with great energy.
Arthur Somervell, whose death occurred a few months ago at the age of seventy-four, was a pupil of Stanford at Cambridge, and later joined the teaching staff of the Royal
College of Music. He was a fairly prolific composer, until he took up the teaching work that led to his appointment as Principal Inspector of Music to the Board of Education and Scottish Education Department.
His music is typically English in its economy and restraint and straightforward sincerity of feeling. It is probably by his songs that he will live, for his best qualities found their happiest expression in his settings of English poets, from Shakespeare to those of the nineteenth century.

Greece and Persia: Salamis
A dramatic interlude written by HUGH Ross WILLIAMSON
' We know the power of the Mede is many times greater than ours. Nevertheless, because we love freedom, we will defend ourselves as best we can. Carry then this answer back from the Athenians that, as long as the sun keeps its place in the sky, we will make no terms with Xerxes.'
That is what the people of Athens said when a messenger told them they were mad to think of fighting against the great army of Xerxes, ruler of the Medes and Persians. In today's broadcast you will hear how the Persians tried to conquer the Greeks in a great sea battle by the island of Salamis.

2.30 Biology in the Service of Man Water and Fuel
H. MUNRO Fox , F.R.S.
In his opening talk in this course which covers a year and which Dr. Munro Fox is giving for the first time, he explained why it is important for everyone to know something of biology, and how life is more worth living today than in the past because of what biology has done for us. We have a better chance of being healthy, we know about microbes and can fight them, we have ways of avoiding pain. In his talk today he will tell you why water and food are essential to plants "and animals as to you yourselves. Plants need food to grow. So do children, but children need even more food for fuel. He will tell you why.
