A glimpse of the preparations for the broadcast from the Alexandra Theatre , Hull, in the Northern programme tomorrow
Vera Beringer , who has acted in anything and everything from Shakespeare to the circus, made her first stage appearance in her mother's play Tares, longer ago, she says, than she cares to remember. She was the original Little Lord Fauntleroy at Terry's Theatre in Mrs. Hodgson Burnett 's dramatisation of her own story, in which Vera Beringer 's equally well-known sister, Esme Beringer , made her first professional appearance as Dick Tipton. Playgoers who can look back over the years must have seen delightful performances by both these sisters in a score of plays.
Vera Beringer 's talk will be full of the interest, pathos, and humour to be found in the theatre. She will speak of the excitements, adventures. and often misadventures, of acting in melodrama, both in -the nursery and on the stage.

Anis Fuleihan , who is of Arab descent and now lives in New York, was born in Cyprus. His Piano Concerto which is being broadcast this afternoon was performed for the first time in England by Miss Long at the Wigmore Hall, London, on March 17, this year, and the occasion also marked the first European performance of any of his works.
Fuleihan's music is fairly well known in America, for his Symphony was performed by the New York Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra, under John Barbirolli , last season, and the present Concerto had its first performance at the Saratoga Springs Music Festival last year with the composer at the piano. Other works have been heard in various American cities, including Cincin- nati, where Eugene Goossens has been his sponsor. 4.0 ORCHESTRA

A Lancashire play by Harold Brighouse
(author of Hobson's Choice)
Produced by Edward Wilkinson
This human little play by Harold Brighouse has not been heard on the air for a good many years. It is a simple story simply told of an old woman about to be taken to the workhouse-and saved at the eleventh hour.
Since 1908 Harold Brighouse has been recognised as a leading Northern dramatist. Most of his plays first saw the light during Miss Horniman's régime at the Gaiety Theatre, Manchester.
