In an article on Rameau's Castor and Pollux, which appeared in the RADIO Times, it was pointed out that Rameau's genius, like that of Franck and Verdi, came to a late flowering, for Castor and, Pollux (only his second opera among twenty-four stage-works) was produced when its composer was fifty-four, in 1737. It hed the stage for about fifty years, after which it suffered neglect until the present century.
' No knowledge of the opera's plot is necessary for the enjoyment of the old-world dances that recall beauties that Fragonard drew , low-hanging, wax-lit candelabras, and an assembly of fops and beaux where
Voltaire's latest stinging epigram was passed around ; in a word, all the glories of the ancien regime But ft mav help to know that in the prologue of the opera there appears
Minerva, with attendant Arts,
Venus accompanied by her Graces ,
Love with his train of Pleasures, and Mars.'

A dramatic interlude

' At my father's home lotus pools were made for me, in one place for the blue lotus flowers, in another for the white lotus flowers, and in another for the red lotus flowers, blossoming for my sake. Of cloth from Benares were my three robes. Day and night a white umbrella was held over me so that I might not be troubled by cold, heat, dust, chaff, or dew. I dwelt. in three palaces, in one for the cold, in one for the summer, in one for the rainy season.' (From ' The Life of the Buddha '.)
This afternoon's story is about the prince Gautama, who lived in India about five hundred years before Christ was born. You will hear how he left his beautiful home and all his wealth and went out into the world to try to find the secret of a good life, and how, when he had found it, he taught it to his followers.

' Wintering Cattle'
W. S. Mansfield
Tonight Mr. Mansfield is to talk about a subject all important to many farmers at this time of the year—the winter feeding of cattle. He will make a comparison between our modern rations and those that existed in perhaps less scientific prewa days. He has also something to say about the out-wintering of store stock.
This is a problem as personal to
Mr. Mansfield as to every other farmer, for he manages the Cambridge University Farm that is run on strictly business lines, apart from the experiments which take place on it. Mr. Mansfield is very well known to East Anglian farmers, particularly as a breeder of dairy short-horns and large white pigs.

from 'The Irish R.M. and his Experiences' by E.E. Somerville and Martin Ross
Read by Denis Johnston
(From Northern Ireland)
Edith Enone Somerville met her third cousin, Violet Florence Martin, for the first time one January day in 1886. One of the cousins was then twenty-four, the other twenty. The two girls quickly became close friends, and at their second or third meeting Miss Somerville suggested that they should write a novel together. The result was 'An Irish Cousin', published in 1889 as the work of 'Geilles Herring and Martin Ross'. But Miss Somerville soon discarded her pseudonym, and it is as 'Somerville and Ross' that the pair became famous.
The first batch of 'Irish R.M.' stories - the work by which they are best known - originally appeared in the Badminton Magazine in 1898. 'Further Experiences of an Irish R.M.' came out in 1908, and a third collection, 'In Mr. Knox's Country' in 1915. It was the last product of this remarkable collaboration, for 'Martin Ross' died the same year.
