Fathers and Sons by Turgenev abridged by Janet Quigley read by Richard Hurndall.
First of twelve instalments.
Margaret Powell, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Flora Thompson, and now Ivan Turgenev. These are just some of the authors whose works have recently been abridged and serialised for Woman's Hour, and they illustrate well the breadth of literary taste which Woman's Hour listeners have grown to expect. Turgenev's Fathers and Sons, starting today, reflects the intellectual and social upheavals of 19th-century Russia. It is a story of the clash between generations, a problem which has as much relevance in the present day as ever it did for Turgenev's contemporaries.

Alan Haven and news and views of the theatre organ world
Time was when an evening at the cinema wasn't complete without the console rising up, bright with ever-changing coloured lights, and the majestic sounds coaxed out of it by the player seated at the mighty monster. Even today, when many organs have disappeared, there is still an enthusiastic demand for music played on the 'King of Instruments.' The enthusiasts can no longer be dismissed as a sizeable minority; the appeal of the cinema organ seems to be approaching its peak all over again
