Conductor, Charles Groves
When Schubert died, his ' Unfinished' Symphony, which had never been performed during his lifetime, lay hidden somewhere in the town of Graz, of whose Musical Society Schubert was a member. Ultimately, after years of fruitless search, the manuscript of the symphony was found. Why it remained unfinished, or whether, indeed, the composer's ultimate intention was ever to finish it at all, can never be known. We do know, however, that it was the work of a new Schubert, a genius for the first time probing the remoter depths of a mature imagination.

' The Story of the Treasure Seekers by E. Nesbit
Read by Brian Smith
12—' Lucky Strike ! '
Alice, using a divining rod—the old school umbrella, that is-tracks down some treasure to its hiding-place. Mr. Bastable reminds the children that it is a mistake to go into business with insufficient capital, so the children buy the ingredients for a right royal feast and store them in the top long drawer of the playroom cupboard.
