'Jennifer's Journeys'
(Third series) by Howard Jones
3 - 'Jennifer in Kensington' with Janet Bruce, Richard Goolden, Leslie Perrins, Laidman Browne, Lavima Loft, Alan Reid, Bruce Belfrage, Ralph de Rohan, Ernest Sefton, Patience Collier
Production by David Davis

Continuing her London journeys, Jennifer comes this afternoon to the Royal Borough of Kensington. From the moment she meets her first visitor in Kensington High Street to the closing scene at the Palace it is a journey packed with, surprises. If you travel with her you will realise that Kensington is much more than a fashionable shopping centre; it is a district of delightful side roads rich in history. In the course of her journey Jennifer learns about the ancient Court that gave Earl's Court its name, of the Hippodrome of Notting Hill, and the reason why so many fine museums are gathered about Exhibition Road. She discovers, too, the charm of Campden Hill and Holland Walk, and hears something of the history of romantic Holland House.

Michael Krein (saxophone)
London Classical Orchestra (Led by Emanuel Hurwitz )
Conductor, Trevor Harvey
Phyllis Tate, who was born in Buckinghamshire, studied at the Royal Academy of Music and while still a student there had several compositions performed, including an operetta and a symphony. The first important work by her to be given in public was a Cello Concerto, played in London in 1933 and broadcast in the following year. Among her recent works three are outstanding: Concerto for saxophone and strings; Nocturne for Four Voices (a highly imaginative setting of a poem by Sidney Keyes); and Sonata for clarinet and cello, which has been chosen as one of the two English works to be performed at the thirtieth festival of the International Society for Contemporary Music, now being held at Salzburg. The Saxophone Concerto, composed in 1944, brings the mercurial qualities of the saxophone into evidence in gay turns of thought and brilliant passage-work, but the music also has much quiet beauty.

Appeal on behalf of the Artists' General Benevolent Institution, by the President, Sir Gerald Kelly , P.R.A.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
The Artists' General Benevolent Institution was established in 1814 and incorporated by Royal Charter in 1842. Its object is to afford financial assistance to professional artists — painters, sculptors, engravers, and architects-who are in need through sickness, accident, misfortune, or old age. Relief is also given to the widows of artists.
The Institution is largely dependent upon voluntary subscriptions, and each year there is an increase in the number of those requiring assistance.
