A Play in three acts by J. M. Barrie adapted for broadcasting and produced by Cyril Wood
Characters in the order in which they are heard
The action of the play, which covers a period of over thirty years, passes between a small manor house in Sus
- sex and an Island in the Outer
Act 1, The Home of the Morlands-
Scene 1, As it was in 1919 Scene 2, As it used to be in 1889 Act 2, The Island — in the Outer
About four years later-1893
Act 3, The Home of the Morlands-
Scene 1, As it used to be in 1914 Scene 2, As it was in 1919 In May, 1937, the first full-length play by Barrie was heard on the air, and most listeners agreed that Dear Brutus might have been written for broadcasting. As his second full-length play to be broadcast belongs to the same fairy genre, the same verdict may be given for Mary Rose , because both these plays depend so largely on atmosphere — a thing which radio conveys superbly.
The story of Mary Rose is told in an article on page 8 by S. R. Littlewood , who was present at the first night at the Haymarket, on April 22, 1920. The best news for listeners is that Nova Pilbeam , who gave such a beautiful performance on the air as Margaret, of the Might Have Been, is to broadcast as Mary Rose , of the Timeless Land. She should be as lovely on the air as Fay Compton was in the theatre eighteen years ago when at the end of the play she floated out like a spirit into the stars.
The only member of the radio cast who was in the original theatre production is Jean Cadell , who gave a memorable performance-of the shivering caretaker of the deserted house — the part she is to take tonight. A. Bromley Davenport broadcast as Mr. Coade in Dear

Goodbye to all the Fun of the Seaside!
The microphone will visit:
The Pier Head Pavilion

Professor Codman's Punch and Judy Show
The Craigside Hotel Hydro and A Pleasure Steamer lying off the Pier
Commentators, Vaughan Thomas and Elwyn Evans
Broadcast from Llandudno
The microphone will speed from Great Orme to Little Orme to pick up what it can of Llandudno's entertainments. Some of the points to be visited have been familiar to many generations of visitors to North Wales, not the least of these being Happy Valley, nestling on the slopes of the Great Orme where, years ago, nigger minstrels were a great attraction and where Charles Wade and his Concord Follies now entertain the crowd.
A broadcast without a visit to Llandudno Pier is unthinkable, and from here will come music played by John Morava and his light orchestra.
The excerpt from Catlin's Summer Follies will be a link with the early days of concert parties, for the name Catlin has long been a famous one in the concert-party world. The programme will also include a couple of dance bands, a cinema organ, and a novelty quintet, not forgetting Professor Codman with his famous Punch and Judy show.

Trio in F minor, Op. 65

Maurice Cole (pianoforte)
Dvorak's Trio in F minor, written in 1883, is a wholesome corrective to the popular view of him as a merely lyrical, colourful, 'nationalist' composer. As Ottokar Sourek says, it is ' a magnificent work, unusually grave in character; the music unfolds itself in a kind of gloomy, passionate defiance. It is as though the composer confronted Fate with a stubborn and persistent—Why ? Not until the very end of the work does the prevailing sense of gloom make way for a feeling of peace and resignation. Hence the passion and power which permeate the work in thought, structure, and formal development ; hence the tendency to a symphonic grandeur which can only be realised in chamber music by the sonority and expressive co-operation of the piano '.
