Hoist's Fugal Concerto for flute, oboe, and strings is the second of two orchestral pieces written in fugal style, the first being the Fugal Overture for full orchestra. Inform the concerto more or less follows the lines of the old concerto grosso. The whole work is full of attractive tunes and in the last movement listeners will hear on the flute the old nursery air 'If all the world were paper'.

' Playing in Pantomime '
No Christmas-titne broadcast on theatrical matters would be complete without a reference to pantomime. Frank Birch knows the game from the inside.
He is more than usua)ly versatile.
Some time Fellow of King's College, Cambridge, he was also lecturer in the Faculty of History at Cambridge University. His'other interests and activities have been less academic. He has been actor and producer In both the him world and the theatre world, and has also broadcast frequently. Many listeners wi)l remember the series of talks he gave under the title ' This Freedom of Ours', his talk in the * Swapping Horses series, and his inimitable readings from the sea stories of W. W. Jacobs.
He has played in a great many pantomimes, having specialised in Dame parts.
