The story of a great singer
A programme of gramophone records, arranged by Ivor Morgan
This gramophone recital is intended to illustrate,by means of recordsand a spoken commentary, the life and art of Enrico Caruso (1873-1921). one of the greatest tenors of all time. He made his debut in Fautt at the Bellini Theatre, Naples, in 1894. His first real successes were in 1902, when he sang at Monte Carlo with Melba in Puccini's La Boheme and then came to Covent Garden and sang the part of the Duke in Verdi's Rigoletto. The late S.H. Pardon has said that 'In its combination of power and sweetness Caruso's voice has not been approached in our time. Moreover, the singer made the most of nature's abundant gifts. His breath control was so complete that he could deliver the longest phrase without any suggestion of being at the end of his resources'.

Another Dream Voice:
Dermot Moeran is going to describe a widespread and disastrous flood which occurred in Pahang (on the east coast of Malaya) at Christmas time in 1926. Water covered the country to a depth of about 86 feet, and 96 inches of rain fell in fifteen days - 26 of which fell in one day. Four out of the five thousand acres of the rubber estate were entirely submerged, and as a result of this flood the jungle was killed for fifty mi!es around the post. All the loose material from the mountains was washed down and they were left absolutely bare rock. The speaker was cut oft for fifteen days and eventually was rescued through the roof of a hut by a canoe.
