D The career of the 'Great Eastern' by Neil Tuson
Produced by Howard Rose
When, in 1854, it was proposed by the Great Eastern Steam Navigation Company to build a mammoth ship, a many-funnelled paddle steamer of some 25,000 tons, there were many who shook their heads and foretold failure for so quixotic an enterprise. They were right. The Leviathan, afterwards renamed the Great Eastern, went down to history as the greatest and weightiest marine ' flop ' that ever refused to be launched. Today's programme tells the story of this Hoodoo ship, a ship that seemed to be truly cursed from the moment she stuck on the launching ' ways' to the last weeks when she ended her career as an advertisement hoarding.

D Reading from a modern play,
' The Lady with a Lamp ', by Reginald Berkeley
Two scenes from this play will be broadcast. The first shows how hard it was for Florence Nightingale to become a nurse, and tells of the encouragement Lord Palmerston gave her. The second scene takes place in the Crimea, after Florence Nightingale has been appointed by the Government to take the first corps of nurses out there. She finds most of the essential stores and food lacking, and has to force unimaginative officials to provide what she wants. By permission of Ivor Novello and Tom Arnold , Gwen Ffrangcon-Davies will play Florence Nightingale.

Conducted by Basil Cameron
Cherubini paid his first visit to London in 1784-6 and came again in 1815 when the Royal Philharmonic Society invited him to write and conduct a symphony, an overture, and a pastoral cantata for the fee of E200. During his stay he finished and conducted the commissioned Symphony in D. In style and form it belongs to the classical school and the hearer should, therefore, not be surprised to find in it many familiar touches reminiscent of the great Viennese symphonists.
Its four movements are most charming and shot through with gaiety. For some reason or other, Cherubini subsequently turned this symphony into a quartet, changing the key to C, writing a fresh second movement, and making various minor alterations.
An Inquiry into Social
' What do we mean by Class ? '
T. H. Marshall and Others
T. H. Marshall , University Reader in Sociology at the London School of Economics, will act as editor throughout this series of broadcasts which will inquire into social distinctions. In the opening broadcast this evening he will have with him in the studio Antony Ludovici , distinguished philosopher, Tom Harrisson , sociologist, and George Isaacs , who is Secretary of the National Society of Operative Printers and Assistants. These people, with their widely differing experiences of life, will discuss the meaning of the word 'class ' and the factors that go to make class distinctions.

The programme devised by Sonny Miller and produced by Max Kester
The famous Foreign Legion, in which sons of all nations serve under the flag of France, has always been a subject for tales of romance, but in this new series it is the comradeship and good humour of the Legionnaires that will be emphasised.
We shall meet them in the desert, halting for half-an-hour on a route march known to them all as La marche fantasque, between barracks at Sidi-bel-Abbes and barracks at
Sousse. We shall hear them grousing, meet the Italian, Fratelli, who would like to be home again, and the Dutchman, Vanderpump, who is the one Legionnaire who doesn't hate the sand, because in private life he was a sand and gravel merchant. ' Once I had a business but no sand; now I have sand but no business '.
French marching songs sung in French, humour, camaraderie, colour, and movement go to make up this fascinating series, an episode from which will be broadcast every other Tuesday.

' Architecture in a Changing
H. S. Goodhart-Rendel ,
President of the Royal Institute of British Architects and for some time Slade Professor of Fine Art, Oxford
The subject of architecture, not previously dealt with in a National Lecture, is far from being the interest solely of the architect and the town planner. It is an art with which everyone is concerned in its intimate connection with the private life of the individual. The homes people live in represent not only one of Everyman's most personal investments but part of the contemporary face of England. The man in the street is continually faced, whether he likes it or not, with the art of building, and it is a plea for the rationalisation of this art and a betterment of the relation between the architect and society which H. S. Goodhart-Rendel will make tonight. The ' party of progress ' in architecture, whose needs he stresses, is concerned, among other things, with the position of the architect ' not only as the chemist who dispenses, but often as the doctor who prescribes '.
