3.51 Jena Symphony in C (attributed to Beethoven)
1 Adagio-Allegro vivace. 2 Adagio cantabile. 3 Minuetto. 4 Allegro
Some years ago the MS. orchestral parts of a symphony were discovered in the archives of the Music Academy in Jena, a very old society closely connected with the University there. It has never been definitely established that the work is by Beethoven, but certain characteristics of the music have led some of the experts to believe that this symphony is an early work of the master. Although it has no great musical value, it remains, if genuine, a very interesting example of the composer's early efforts.

1 Cheerful impressions on arrival in the country (Allegro ma non troppo). 2 By the Brook (Andante molto moto). 3 Peasant merry-making and storm (Allegro). 4 Shepherds' Song-Glad and thankful feelings after the storm (Allegretto)

Colonel G. F. T. Leather
Four hundred and twenty-five years ago today the famous battle between the Scots and English, in which the former were defeated and their king,
James IV, was killed, was fought at
Flodden Field, Northumberland.
Flodden has always been considered one of the most romantic and tactically interesting battles in history. Colonel Leather, of Middleton Hall nearby, knows every inch of the ground and has made a most careful study of the day's events.
He first made a serious study of the fight when the Royal English
Forestry Society visited the Scottish border for their annual excursion.
Their last day was spent at Ford
Castle, Etal, and Flodden Field, and as a description of the battle was part of the programme, someone had to study the matter. Colonel Leather accepted the responsibility and is now a leading authority on the battle.

K. R. McPherson
Towards the close of his service under the Egyptian Government,
Kenneth McPherson determined to discover whether the mystifying performances of the Egyptian snake-charmers were really genuine or were dependent upon expert trickery
This evening he will describe one particular investigation in detail.
Listeners will remember that only last week Godfrey Locker-Lampson described his very similar experiences of Egyptian snake-charming and will be interested to compare the two accounts.
