'Restoring a home to water birds, a fen mere re-created in Cambridgeshire '
J. Wentworth Day
The reclaiming of marshland in the eastern counties of England which has gone on through the centuries has been an excellent thing for everything but the marshland birds that used to inhabit it. Today the late editor of Illustrated Sporting and Dramatic News is to tell listeners about the success he has already achieved in re-creating marshland out of a piece of land he inherited in Cambridgeshire. The bittern, among other interesting birds, has already come back.
Wentworth Day, who has recently returned from Egypt, where he advised the Egyptian Government on the preservation of birds, gave a talk last week on his experiences out there.

In November, 1870, Brahms's friend, C. F. Pohl , author of the great standard biography of Haydn, showed him a curious and little-known work by the eighteenth-century master: a Feldpartita in B flat written in the 1780's for Prince Esterhazy's military band. It is scored for two oboes, two horns, three bassoons, and serpent. Brahms was immediately impressed by the work, but the variations by which he made that Chorale one of the world's best known melodies were not written till the summer of 1873. 8.20 Pianoforte Concerto No. 1, in D minor

The annual meeting of the British Association for the Advancement of Science opens today at Cambridge and lasts until August 24. For the whole of this week Cambridge, home of science, will be full of scientists, and science will be in the air. It is the aim of the BBC to put it on the air. Four talks on four of the lectures, or on the subject of the lectures, have been arranged. They will be broadcast from a special studio in Emmanuel College, Cambridge.
Tonight a well-known broadcaster,
Dr. Allan Ferguson , Professor of Physics at Queen Mary's College and one of the General Secretaries of the British Association, will give his impression of the opening of the meeting and of Lord Rayleigh's presidential address on the subject of ' Natural vision and vision aided by science '.
The second broadcast talk, by Michael Graham will be given on Friday night, and the two remaining broadcasts, on August 23 and 24.
