Vaughan Williams's ' London ' Symphony is actually a musical impression of London just before the War began, but it is equally descriptive of the great city as it is today ; for although a few of the recognised sounds of the London streets make their way into the music, it is with the spirit of the city and its citizens that the composer has dealt, and the resultant music is that of a poet of sympathy and understanding. The first movement is thought to be descriptive of morning in the city ; the Westminster chimes are heard. The slow second movement is based largely on the plaintive melody which introduces it. The third movement is called a Scherzo, but that is by no means its feeling ; ' Nocturne ' is a better title, for it is an impression of London by night, and even though the tempo is brisk, the music strikes a note of sadness and mystery. The fourth movement is full of bustling energy with a preponderating and majestic march tune. Later, after the chimes have been heard again, a solemn epilogue brings the symphony to a close.
Ⓓ ' Making the Most of Your
' Care of the Skin '
In her first talk in the first series ever broadcast in this country to women on making the most of their looks, that authority on the subject, Mary Embrey , told women why they should. Apart from the feature that she made famous for nearly five years in the Morning Post, she has written articles on a wide range of subjects for all nartional newspapers in this country, and has contributed to the New York Times and the Montreal Star. She has a world-wide experience of women and their looks, having travelled widely, West as far as Vancouver, East as far as Constantinople. On December 16 she will broadcast on the care of the hair.
The music at this afternoon's Thé Dansant will be played for you in strict dance tempo by Victor Silvester and his Ballroom Orchestra.

Stella Mary Dances. ....Ernest Austin
Ernest Austin's 'Stella Mary Dances' are a set of six dances written in memory of the composer's daughter, Stella Mary. They have nothing of the gloom of funereal music, but express the happier remembrances of a beautiful child life. They were first performed at a Promenade Concert under Sir Henry Wood on September 26, 1918.

Every programme in this popular series is devised and arranged by Bruce Sievier , whose first show on the air, given in 1934, was The Silver Patrol of which he wrote the book and lyrics. Sievier made his debut as a broadcaster when he compered in 1936 the series ' Words with Music ' which he also wrote, devised, and produced, and which eulogised the merits of the lyric author. He came to the microphone again as the raconteur in Dolores, which he aptly called ' a slice of life with music '.
In the new year he is to come to the microphone again with another ' slice of life with music' entitled Land of Song, music by Albert Arlen. He is also the originator of Peggy Cochrane 's new series, ' Number, please ', and the compiler of the programmes for Lavengro, the Romany singer. During his association with the BBC he has used only two songs that have not been all-British.
