A serial version for broadcasting of Crosbie Garstin 's trilogy ' The Penhales ', read by Geoffrey Tandy
The end has come to Ortho Penhale's career as a privateer captain-he is now a prisoner in a Spanish gaol, and alone. Meanwhile things are beginning to complicate themselves at home in Cornwall. Young Trevaskis, who (unknown to himself) is Ortho's natural son, and therefore the only male Penhale heir, is back home on leave. In this instalment he meets Ortho's niece, Jenifer, daughter of his brother, Eli.
Michael Collins formed this seven-strong orchestra specially for broadcasting, and brought it to the microphone for the first time in February this year. All the members of the Orchestra are specialists, and are at the same time extremely versatile.
Collins himself studied at the Royal College of Music in Manchester under Carl Fuchs. Coming to London he joined the BBC Symphony Orchestra which he left to become principal cello with the Theatre Orchestra for some six years.

3—' Toys of other Days '
F. Gordon Roe
It is probably more through the familiar intimacy of toys than by any other form of relic that domestic life of the past can be made real. The toy that was actually played with seems a more vital object than the chair that was actually sat in. F. Gordon Roe is going to describe some toys contained in a number of London museums-the British Museum, the Bethnal Green Museum, the Geffrye Museum in the East End, the Cuming Museum, and the London Museum itself. The speaker was formerly editor of The Connoisseur, and is a distinguished antiquarian keenly interested in toys of every age.

Founded by Douglas Cleverdon on the story entitled ' Enoch Soames ' in Max Beerbohm 's book ' Seven Men ' with V. C. Clinton-Baddeley as Max Beerbohm
Denis Arundell as Enoch Soames and Brian Cummins as the Devil
Production by Moray McLaren
This play presents the old theme of Faust in a new version typical of Max Beerbohm. Enoch Soames , a minor poet of the 'nineties, is so certain of posthumous fame that he sells his soul to the devil in return for a visit to the British Museum Reading Room one hundred years hence. It is his hope and intention, of course, to gloat upon the glory of his own name.
Listeners may depend upon
Max Beerbohm to provide Enoch Soames and them, with a surprise ending.
