Improvisation on a suggested theme
David Buchan 's programme this afternoon includes three popular piano pieces which of late years have been neglected by pianists, but have been continually played as transcriptions for light orchestras and other smaller combinations. The idea of this programme came to Buchan after reading a letter in the Radio TIMES in which this curious fact was pointed out.

' How it is done '
The first of the series, illustrated by an archaeologist's experiences in the Near East by John Garstang , D.Sc., LL.D., John Rankin Professor of the Methods and Practice of Archaeology in the University of Liverpool
Many listeners to previous archaeological talks have expressed a wish to know more about excavators' methods. In this series of talks, of which he is giving the first today, Professor John Garstang will tell them what they want to know.
Drawing on his memories of forty years' research work in the Near East-Egypt, the Sudan, Palestine, Syria, and Asia Minor-in amplification of his talks on ' Discoveries in Bible Lands ' broadcast earlier in the year, he will in today's talk explain why, where, and how archaeologists dig, and give a brief account of a typical digger's day.
Quartet in E flat, Op 74
1 Poco adagio-Allegro. 2 Adagio ma non troppo. 3 Presto. 4 Allegretto con variazioni played by The Stratton String Quartet:
George Stratton (violin)
Carl Taylor (violin)
Watson Forbes (viola)
John Moore (violoncello)
From the way in which Beethoven makes beautiful effects from pizzicato (plucked strings), this quartet has always been known as the ' Harp ' Quartet. It belongs to a period when the tragic affliction of his deafness was beginning to be seriously felt. Some of the sadness which can be heard in this music may well be a reflection of his own depressed spirits.
Led by Marie Wilson

Symphony No. 2, in D minor
1 Allegro maestoso. 2 Poco adagio. 3 Scherzo: Vivace. 4 Finale: Allegro
The numbering of Dvorak's symphonies is a little misleading. Actually his first three symphonies were written as early as 1874-75, but two of these were suppressed till after his death, while the third was issued only in a revised form as ' No. 3, Op. 76 '. In the meantime Dvorak had produced his so-called First and Second (really fourth and fifth) Symphonies. Op. 63 and 70. The Second Symphony in D minor was composed in 1883-85 for the Royal Philharmonic Society and Dvorak came to London to conduct the' first performance in April, 1885. It is a magnificent work, a finer achievement than the far better-known Fourth and Fifth (' New
World ' Symphonies), though its tragic nature will always stand in the way of its popularity.

An appeal on behalf of NEWBURY DISTRICT HOSPITAL by STEWART ROME
Newbury District Hospital, founded in 1885 with 12 beds, has several times been enlarged and recently practically rebuilt and re-equipped on modern lines. There are now large airy wards, with sun verandahs, accommodating 64 patients, and admissions last year numbered about a thousand.
The Hospital is a voluntary one and serves a large area of Berkshire and Hampshire. Newbury is situated at the intersection of the London to Bath Road and the road from the Midlands and North to the South Coast, so that the hospital is called upon to treat a great number of motor-accident cases. The cost of the extensions has been largely met by local effort, and this appeal is made in order to try and meet the outstanding deficit.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to [address removed].

At the table
Produced by Hedley Briggs
Few programmes have appealed to so many as ' The Table under the Tree', which was devised by Eric Maschwitz when he was Director of Variety, and carried out by Wilfrid Rooke Ley and Walford Hyden.
It was first produced in October, 1935, and was broadcast almost continuously until April, 1937.
Once again the elderly gentleman in the cloak is to sit in the cafe gardens amid the perfumes of flowers on the southern night, sip his vermouth, and with mixed feelings watch and listen to the rapture of a young couple who have dropped in. The romance that is behind him is in their voices and in the songs they sing. And to and fro, with his tray, moves Dino Galvani as the waiter.
