' The Instruments of the Orchestra', 1
Constant Lambert's talks on ' The Instruments of the Orchestra ' are not intended to be directly technical, but are addressed to the ordinary listener. The chief aim is to help listeners to appreciate and understand the subtleties of orchestral colour, and the characteristics of various combinations of instruments. This evening's talk and the one to be given next week will be devoted to the wood-wind family, and ' an interesting point will be the use of the oboes in Handel's time, when they were used much in the same way as trumpets, and the modern conception of the oboe as a soft delicate, and pastoral instrument.
The fourth talk will be concerned with the brass section, the fifth with the strings, and the sixth with percussion.

' The Documentary Film'
John Grierson and H. Hodge
Listeners will- be interested to hear the views of the man who was a pioneer in the idea of making short films dealing with industrial life, social problems, agricultural work, and so forth, and who was the first to call them ' documentary ' films.
About ten years ago John Grierson went to the Empire Marketing Board as Film Officer. There he made many of these films, which have been shown all over the country. When the Empire Marketing Board closed down, Grierson joined the General Post Office as Film Officer, taking his unit with him. During that time he was responsible for the film of the BBC called The Voice of Britain. Last May he left the Post Office to become a director of Film Centre, for which he acts in an advisory capacity.
