by Florence Hooton
(First broadcast performance)
Florence Hooton , who comes to the microphone with another popular violoncello recital this evening, has had extensive experience at the microphone. She has been broadcasting ever since Savoy Hill days, and is now playing for television. She was the first cellist to do so. Florence Hooton comes from a musical family, and her father was principal cellist in the Spa Orchestra at Scarborough. At the age of six his daughter made her first public appearance as a pianist, and thereafter studied the cello at the London Violoncello School and the Royal Academy of Music. She has given several first performances with the orchestra, among which have been Frank Bridge's Oration (Concerto
Elegiaco) and York Bowen 's Rhapsody. She is also a member of the Grinke Trio.

' The Geologist at Work '
C. E. M. Bromhead
This final talk in the series will describe the work of a professional held geologist and show how such experts can determine the character of the rock formations that lie under their feet.
The work of the field geologist is of enormous value to the country, since he is able to indicate among other things the probable presence beneath the soil of coal and water.
The speaker is himself a working geologist and a. servant of H.M. Geological Survey.
Two short and sinister plays
' The River Glideth' by Norman Edwards and ' Death in the Crisis' by Peter Cheyney
In which are discovered
A Ghost and a Murderer
The plays produced by John Cheatle
Macabre radio plays are becoming extremely popular, and those listeners who enjoyed the recent programme ' Macabre ' from the West of England may look forward to another treat tonight, for, we are assured, these two short plays are as bone-chilling as the most thrill-hungry listener could wish for.
Both the authors of these plays have had a good deal of radio experience. Norman Edwards is the author of many radio plays-Quarrel Island, Death of an Artist, and The Case of Lady Tallond, to mention but a few. Peter Cheyney is well known as a short-story writer, and has made a speciality of the English crime story. He has written nine radio plays including Death in the Crisis.
