The King's Prize at Bisley
A commentary on the final stages of the competition by Captain E. H. Robinson and S. J. de Lotbiniere from Bisley Camp
This is the last stage in the shooting for the King's Prize, the most coveted individual trophy competed for at Bisley. The competition is open to any British subject of either sex--it was won in 1930 by a woman, Miss M. E. Foster-and it attracts entries from every Dominion.
Those left in the competition today-the final day-are known as the King's Hundred. Among them last year were competitors from as far afield as Australia (no fewer than seven), Natal, Johore, and British Guiana.
There are four butts and fifty targets-competitors shoot two on one target. They will have fired ten shots at 900 yards and will have dropped back to the 1,000 yards' firing line when the broadcast begins. At this stage the best scores should be about 215 out of a possible 225. The. commentators will be stationed just below the firing line to describe the last 15 shots in this very close and exciting competition, and eventually to tell listeners the name of yet another King's Prizewinner.

Little Dunmow v. Hatfield
A commentary during play by Thomas Woodrooffe from Barley Barn Meadow,
Yesterday, from Lord's, cricket fans heard a commentary on cricket played by first-class cricketers. Today, by contrast, they can hear a commentary on a village cricket match.
Little Dunmow are playing Hatfield Heath in Barley Barn Meadow. the former's ground. Close by is The Flitch Inn, and when stumps are drawn twenty-two men and the umpires will stroll across to the old inn to regale themselves with refreshment and take part in a game of darts-as English a scene as any Thomas Woodrooffe has ever commented on.
A commentary on the 220 yards, 120 yards Hurdles, and the one mile by H. M. Abrahams from the White City Stadium
This is the last day of the two-days' meeting at the White City. At the opening of the broadcast it is possible that listeners may hear the end of the final of the three miles. They will hear in any case the finals of the 220 yards, the 120 yards hurdles, and the one mile.

Mozart uses the term Divertimento in much the same way as Serenade, which is an instrumental piece in several movements originally intended for performance in the open air. Mozart wrote about twenty-two divertimenti : some are for strings, some for wind, and some for both. The No. 11 in D, composed in the summer of 1776, at his native Salzburg, is scored for one oboe, two horns, and strings. Its melodies remind us of German folk-songs, of a merry, rather than sentimental character.
Michael Haydn (1737-1806) entered St. Stephen's, Vienna, as a chorister in 1745, five years after his brother Joseph. There he learnt to play the violin and organ and was soon proficient enough to act as deputy organist at St. Stephen's. His life appears to have been spent in the service of the Church. As a composer he was almost as prolific as his brother, whose genius, however, overshadowed him. He wrote about 360 compositions for the Church, thirty symphonies, and many other choral and instrumental works. The most famous of his pupils was Weber.
A serial story of the Hudson Bay by Robert Flaherty read by Geoffrey Tandy
The first instalment of this stirring story, which is based on the personal experience of the author, concerned itself with a description of Hudson's Bay in which the scenes are laid. This is a great land-locked sea. It is 1,200 miles long and 600 miles broad, ice-bound for all but four months in the year, November until July. The coast is a desolate subArctic one, inhabited' at far-flung points by a few fur traders and nomadic bands of Indians and Eskimos.
The traders of these posts were kept alive by a ship which arrived from England once a year, and brought not only their outfits and mails hut the food which was all that stood between them and starvation -in return, taking back to England fabulous cargoes of furs.
This ship was in command of a man named Grant-Captain William Grant, who had been sailing into the Bay once a year for thirty years. His ship was the Eskimo, a three-masted barque. To the Indians on the lower part of the Bay he was a fabulous figure ;. among the Eskimos in the North he was a legend ; to the traders on the Bay, he was the one link with the ' Outside '.
When the second instalment begins, you will hear that Captain Grant was late-later getting out of the Bay than he had ever been before. Winter was already down.....
