* A reading from ' Thoughts on the Divine Love ', by the late Archbishop
Archbishop Frederick Temple , father of the present Archbishop of York, was one of the most eloquent speakers who ever stepped into the pulpit. There must still be some living who heard him preach on a Good Friday, and such persons will surely testify that they have heard nothing more moving or more challenging since.
' Thoughts on the Divine Love ', from which a reading will be given each morning at 10.0 a.m. from today until Saturday inclusive, is a collection of these addresses, and has recently been reprinted (S.P.C.K. Is. 6d.). The direct personal evangelical appeal of the Archbishop's message will be found as relevant today as it was when first told seventy years ago.

"God so loved the world" (Goss)
"God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved".

A serial radio version of Crosbie Garstin 's trilogy ' The Penhales read by Geoffrey Tandy
This serial, of which you will hear the first instalment today, is made up from three books, The Owls' House ', ' High Noon '. and ' The West Wind ', which together follow the life of a Cornishnian, Ortho Penhale, in the second half of the eighteenth century.
The author, himself a Cornishman, and also a much-travelled man, leads his hero to almost every part of the world, and the result is a serial full of-action and with an ever-changing background.

A programme of gramophone records
Presented by Alan Frank
This is the first of a series of six weekly talks on that alleged bugbear of the ' ordinary listener': chamber music. As Alan Frank will show, it is one of the most delightful and informal of all kinds of music. It was always meant to be played and heard quietly in a room ; now by means of radio and gramophone it has come back to the home, and to listen to chamber music by radio in domestic comfort is the ideal way. Alan Frank is a regular contributor to the RADIO TIMES and has broadcast on every subject from Chaliapin to jazz. (He is to talk in ' Swing Time ' on Wednesday.)

G. Thalben-Ball , D.Mus., Organist of the Temple Church
Illustrated by G. Thalben-Ball and Sandy Macpherson
This is the last broadcast of the series in which Dr. Thalben-Ball has been telling listeners about organ music and how best to appreciate it. The broadcast will take an original form in giving those listeners who love the theatre organ and those who love the concert organ a chance to compare the two instruments.
Herbert Murrill of the BBC
Music Department has composed a piece of music specially for the occasion. This will be played by Dr. Thalben-Ball at the BBC concert organ, and Sandy Macpherson at the St. George's Hall theatre organ. The two organs will be played both together and in succession. This is the first time that such an experiment has been made at Broadcasting House, and it should prove an interesting treat to lovers of both types of organ music.

American Midwest Indoor
(representing the United States) from London and Chicago with commentaries by Thomas Woodrooffe and Ken Ellington
This interesting broadcast is the result of a challenge issued by the Society of Miniature Rifle Clubs to the National Rifle Association of America for the British champion team to shoot a transatlantic match against a champion American team.
The teams will consist of six men, and they will fire 10 shots each at 50 yards, using iron sights and standard targets. There will be a pause after five shots have been fired to check targets and give listeners an official estimate of the scores. The Lensbury and Britannic House team have had their range at Shell-Mex House specially lengthened from 25 yards to 50 yards for the occasion. Highest possible score for each team is 600 points. Ken Elling ton is one of the Columbia Broadcasting System's ace commentators.
