Lt.-Col. H. S. Scott-Harden ,
Mahomed Abdullah Hassan, better known as ' The Mad Mullah ', was an Arab or Somali preacher who in the early years of the present century instigated a holy war against the Christians. Beginning with only a handful of followers, he soon collected an army of seven or eight thousand armed with rifles and spears.
By 1903 his raids into British territory had become such a serious nuisance that an expeditionary force was despatched to suppress him. To this Lt.-Col. Scott-Harden was attached and this afternoon he will tell listeners something about the campaign.
So far from being mad, the Mullah appears to have been an exceedingly astute general. The epithet ' Mad ' was simply an abbreviation of 'Mahomed '.

A programme of gramophone records presented by Scott Goddard
Scott Goddard , well-known broadcaster of music talks and music critic of the News Chronicle, has planned this series of recitals to give the listener the opportunity of hearing some of the fine music written for ' special occasions ', either public or domestic. Incidentally, certain pieces will be played during the course of the series that are not necessarily first-rate music but are interesting because of the historic occasion for which they were meant.

Mendelssohn Scholarship for composition, the first holder of which was Sir Arthur Sullivan.

In 1923 he received the Gold Medal of the Worshipful Company of Musicians, and in 1934 he joined the staff of the BBC as pianist in the Variety Orchestra.

Schubert's' three-act opera Alfonse and Estrella is a hotch-potch of battles, love, conspiracy, hunting, peasant life and other operatic conventions of the day. Like Schubert's other operas, it was not a success. It was, however, ultimately performed at Weimar under Liszt in 1854, and again, with a rewritten libretto and many cuts, in 1881 at Karlsruhe.
