by G. D. Cunningham from the Town Hall, Birmingham G. D. Cunningham was appointed organist to the City of Birmingham in 1925 and shortly afterwards organist to the University of Birmingham. Both the instruments which he plays, the famous Birmingham Town Hall organ and the four-manual instrument in the Great Hall of the University, are among the finest of their kind. Cunningham has been an organist practically all his life. At the Royal Academy of Music he won the Henry Smart Scholarship for organ playing, and while studying at the Academy was appointed organist at the Congregational Church, West Hampstead. In 1901 he became organist at Alexandra Palace, London, being chosen from about seventy candidates. Further appointments which he has held are those of organist at St. James's Church, iMuswell Hill-where the beautiful Harrison organ was built to his specification-at Holy Trinity Church. Stroud Green, and at St. Alban's Church, Holborn.

Many listeners will remember the series of six talks that Henry Williamson gave under this title last August and'September.
These talks described how, deciding to do less writing and more farming, the author bought a more or less derelict farm in Norfolk, and despite every discouragement worked to make it a profitable and well-going concern.
So popular did these broadcasts prove that it has been decided to extend the story of the Williamson farm for another group of talks of which this evening's is the first.
Henry Williamson is the author of ' Tarka the Otter ', ' Salar the Salmon ', and a number of other works that have placed him in the front line of English naturalist writers.
