It was owing to the interest of Ole Bull, the famous Norwegian violinist, that Grieg was sent to study at the Leipzig Conservatorium. It was no doubt also due to the influence of Ole Bull that Grieg wrote with such understanding and sympathy for stringed instruments. Among Grieg's small output of chamber music there are three sonatas for violin and piano. The third, in C minor, Op. 45, was published in 1887. A Norwegian critic has summed up the work as follows: ' The Third Violin Sonata may be described as a dramatic sonata. It is classical in form, and with its simple lines and clearly defined formation, imbued with the spirit of conflict and melancholy, it stands as a monumental work in the sonata literature of the North.'

'A Tale of Two Cities', written by Dickens in 1859 as a serial for his own journal All the Year Round, was the only one of his novels to be conceived exclusively in terms of action. It is, so to speak, the most 'modern' of all his books, the plot arising directly and naturally from the continual interplay of character and circumstance. The French Revolution provides the circumstance; and in his vivid pictures of that violent upheaval Dickens ranks second only to Carlyle (who, incidentally, lent Dickens a whole cart-load of books on the subject). The story is the story of the effect of the maelstrom on a little group of people whose destinies are strangely and tragically linked by it - Dr. Manette and his daughter; Charles Darnay, the French aristocrat; Mr. Lorry, the lawyer; Defarge, the revolutionary zealot; the violent Madame Defarge; the faithful Miss Pross; and the heroic wastrel Sidney Carton - and it is one of the triumphs of a great book that the fortunes and the development of these fictitious characters remain throughout far more important and exciting than the Revolution itself.

One of the most popular series of talks was undoubtedly that of the Saturday Sports Talks, given weekly in 1935 and 1936. It is good news that they are to be revived. They will cover every kind of sport and will be given weekly.
The first broadcast in the new series will link up with the Wales v. England Rugby International played at Cardiff this afternoon. Rowe Harding, the famous Welsh International, will come to the microphone at Cardiff to reminisce with one or two other Welsh Internationals on the subject of Welsh International Rugby. Rowe Harding is well known to listeners, and so will be the names of whoever he persuades to join him in the studio.
