War having broken out with France again, Ortho Penhale found himself master of the Ghost, a brigantine privateer. His first cruise was a success, but since then matters gradually deteriorated until people began to say that the famous Penhale's luck had gone.
This instalment finds Ortho in company with an old whaling ship and a Channel Island lugger, dogging a number of Dutch East-India-men with a convoy of 74 guns, too large for them to engage with safety. But matters are desperate for the British ships and they finally close with her-the result of the engagement you will hear today.

Leon Boellmann , born in Alsace in 1862, was a real Frenchman, and none of his music could be mistaken for anything but genuine French. In one respect, however, his career as a composer was not the one usually followed by his countrymen -he wrote no music for the stage.
Coming to Paris at an early age to enter the Ecole de Musique Reli gieuse, he won many honours there ; when only nineteen, he became assistant organist, and soon afterwards organist, of the church of St.
Vincent de Paul. He achieved a great reputation as a master of his instrument composing a considerable quantity of music for it and choral music for the church, as well as orchestral and chamber music and songs.
Boellmann died in 1897, a fortnight after his thirty-fifth birthday.

Roy Harris comes from California. He has had a varied career. His mother first taught him the piano and after graduating from high school he studied the clarinet. At eighteen he went on a farm and a couple of years later joined the army.
After the war he worked at various jobs and pursued his musical studies during his spare time. In 1920 Harris entered the University of California and studied philosophy and economics as well as music.
In 1926 he went to Paris and studied for a year with Nadia Boulanger. From that time onwards Harris has produced numerous important compositions for orchestra, chorus (including the present symphony, which was written in 1935), and chamber music combinations. At present he is head of the Composition Department of the Westminster Choir School at Princetown, New Jersey.

Gary Moore 's Hawaiian Orchestra is a new combination on the air, having given its first broadcast on June 19 of this year. The Orchestra consists of one electric guitar, one standard guitar, one ukulele, and one string bass. There are also a vocal trio, and solo vocalist.
Moore himself was born in Ireland, but has been living in this country for ten years. A few years ago when visiting Hawaii he got the idea of forming a combination of the type that he now runs. He has been associated with a number of well-known dance band personalities, notably Maurice Winnick with whom he played for two years, Sydney Kyte , and, more recently, Alfredo, with whom he has played as a guest artist. He was, incidentally, one of the first artists to play the electric guitar in this country.
This evening he will be playing one of his own compositions, ' Twinkling Stars'.

This is the first of the series of representative plays written specially for radio by leading dramatists of foreign countries. All over the world writers of various countries are working for radio, and this series should afford British listeners the opportunity of hearing some of the best radio plays from overseas. It is hoped to include among the plays works from Scandinavia, Germany, Italy, France, Belgium, Holland, Switzerland, Hungary, Finland, and Prague.
Storm over Santa Cruz is stirring stuff, and tells the story of what happened during a hurricane that devastated a small town on the island of Cuba in 1932. The principal drama is centred in the telephone exchange in general, and on the character of a girl telephonist in particular.
