'The Story of Roast Pig'
A play by JEAN SUTCLIFFE
This afternoon's play is based on an idea taken from Charles Lamb 's famous essay, ' Dissertation on the Origin of Roast Pig '. How much of the story is fact and how much fable will probably never be known, though Lamb himself claimed that it was discovered in an ancient Chinese manuscript. At all events, it is the naive and whimsical story of how, in long-ago China, Bo-Bo, the loutish son of Ho-ti, was left at home to look after a sow which had just farrowed. Bo-bo, fond of fire, plays with it once too often on this occasion, and the house goes up in flames. Anxiously endeavouring to haul the burnt and blackened sow from the inferno, he repeatedly licks his fingers to cool them ; the taste is delicious, and the result one in which, for many weeks to come, the whole countryside burns down its houses whenever it wants to taste roast pig.

Sir FREDERICK WHYTE , K.C.S.I.
Harold Sandier , brother of Albert Sandier , the famous violinist, is by now well known to listeners, having been broadcasting for approximately eighteen months with his Viennese Octet. He is also a popular figure in many of the leading West-End hotels and restaurants, of which his characteristic gypsy and Continental music are a feature. He decided to form the Viennese Octet after spending some time on the Continent, when he was struck by the possibilities of bringing to England many of those gay and carefree tunes typical of Central Europe.
Like his brother, Harold Sandier plays the violin. His Octet consists of two violins, one viola, cello, bass, two clarinets, trumpet, and piano. The use of two clarinets enables him to obtain a vivid contrast in solos, and, together with the trumpet, a fullness which is very effective.

' How the Aeroplane is Changing the World'
Tonight's talk will be of a general character, surveying the various social and economic changes which have been wrought by the aeroplane, and speculating as to future probabilities. Modern commercial advantages might be illustrated by the speed with which it is possible to write to and get a reply from Australia, while social change may be shown in predicted plans whereby week-ends in North Africa for Englishmen may shortly be a possibility.
Nigel Norman , himself an enthusiastic pilot, takes a keen interest in the effect of aviation on society. He was responsible for the construction of Heston Airport, which has been much praised as an example of forward-looking aerodrome design. The speaker is also chairman of the Aviation Committee of the London Chamber of Commerce.

In 1909 Vaughan Williams composed an overture and incidental music for a production of Aristophanes's comedy The Wasps. The overture is based on some of the tunes of the choruses in the play. The music, particularly in the opening, graphically suggeMs the angry buzzing of the wasps. The principal subject of the overture, heard on the solo clarinet and bassoon, is imbued with the spirit of comedy.
