' Handel's Own Harpsichord
One day in 1852 a piano-tuner of Winchester sold an old, worn-out-looking harpsichord to a British firm of piano manufacturers.
That old instrument, which once belonged to Handel himself, is now in the Victoria and Albert Museum. On the way to the room where it stands in its glass case can be seen the splendid scarlet State Barge built for Frederick Prince of Wales in 1732. It was in noble craft like this that the court of George I listened to Handel's Water Music, and it was quite probably on this harpsichord that the music was composed.
Alan Ivimey , author and journalist, is going to tell you about the harpsichord, and the barge, and about an old city shop-front which stands close behind it. He will broadcast again tomorrow, this time on the subject of beacons.

The action takes place in an old house in Pontippy Square, Polchester
Production by John Richmond
The Old Ladies, which was first produced at the New Theatre in 1935, deals with a phase in the life of three elderly residents of a Polchester boarding-house. Those who think that the common human emotions are dead in the very old will find much to disillusion them in this story of the private hopes and fears of three very much alive people. Mary Jerrold, Jean Cadell, and Edith Evans are all playing the original parts that they took at the New Theatre.

' East in Western Dress'
The exotic music of Asia has long exercised a peculiar fascination on European composers. It has attracted them and they have wanted to incorporate it, or some of its features, in their own work ; but they have always been checked by the sheer impossibility of reconciling the totally dissimilar musical systems of East and West.' Consequently Western attempts at Oriental music are at best a compromise and often only a convention. Mozart's ' Turkish music', for instance, is purely conventional, while Weber and Hoist at least based their music on genuine Arabian and Japanese melodies.
