Schubert's Duo, or Sonata, Op. 162, dates from 1817, the composer's twentieth year.

In the summer of 1781 Mozart wrote four violin sonatas, of which this is the first. It is" a charming little work, graceful and transparent in style, with an idyllic slow movement. The finale moves at a very quick tempo and has something of the character of a Viennese marcM*
A short story written for broadcasting by John Gloag and read by the author
When two rich young company directors sat back on their laurels and decided that they had earned for themselves a world cruise, they little dreamed of what the passenger list would hold for them.
Actually it held one, Sonia Dreene ,
' a sun-soaked blonde with violet eyes and dark gold hair, and a voice that made any word she spoke sound so soft and magic and wonderful that you hated her to stop talking.'

' Old Chiselback ' is the name given to the granite stonecutter in the Cornish stone yards. The part of ' Old Chiselback ' in this production will be played by half-a-dozen Cornish granite workers, each one portraying a different part of ' Old Chiselback's ' past and present life.
The programme will attempt to show the effect of granite working on the men themselves, and will depict the processes of quarrying and working the stone.
Some famous buildings made of Cornish granite are the London
County Hall, the National Museum of Wales at Cardiff, the Singapore Naval Base, and the new Lambeth Bridge.
