The Chief Twister,
played by Frank Mannheimer
Frank Mannheimer 's first visit to Europe was in the ranks of the American Army during the war. It was at the very outset of his career that music had thus to be laid aside, but he was fortunately able to return to it, and when he next came from the United States he had already a firmly established reputation as a concert pianist. Since then he has often played in London, and at all the principal European centres, where he has shown himself to be an artist of very great power and subtlety.
He was chosen as the representative American pianist to join the Brosa Quartet in Bloch's Quintet at the International Festival at Siena, in 1928, and has appeared in England on several occasions in recitals of American music.
Further programmes in this series will be broadcast on Wednesday (Regional, 6.0), Thursday (Regional,

Pictures, Ltd.) in 'THE SEAGULL' by Anton Chekhov , translated by Constance Garnett
The action takes place in the house and garden of Sorin's estate in Russia during the last decade of the last century
There will be three brief intervals during the play to indicate the passage of time
The play adapted for broadcasting and produced by Barbara Burnham
In this play Chekhov reached the height of the wit, parody, and satire with which he made his name as one of the world's greatest playwrights. Like many of Chekhov's plays The Seagull is set in a large country house in nineteenth-century Russia, and here are collected a company of people each with private hopes, happinesses, and fears.
Trigorin, the chief male character in the play, is said to be largely autobiographical, but listeners, while they may take Trigorin seriously, should be warned not to take too serious a view of the play's opening act, which is a violent parody of the symbolist Russian drama typical of the times in which The Seagull was written.

An appeal on behalf of GLASGOW ROYAL INFIRMARY by DAVID BRUCE WARREN , O.B.E.
From its earliest days the Glasgow Royal Infirmary has played an important part in the teaching of medicine and surgery, and was a pioneer in the training of nurses under Mrs. Rebecca Strong , a pupil of Florence Nightingale in London after the Crimean War.
In the wards of Glasgow Infirmary Lord Lister first practised antiseptic surgery. and there too occurred later Sir William McEwen 's discovery of aseptic surgery. The first X-ray apparatus in the world to be used for medical purposes was installed in' Glasgow Royal Infirmary in 1896. The daily average number of beds occupied last year in the Infirmary and its auxiliary institutions was 960.
About a thousand patients attended daily at the out-patient department.
