'My boy,' writes a mother, ' was delighted when you played the " Peter and the Wolf music some weeks ago. He thinks this postcard will act like magic, and will be disappointed every day until he hears it againl ' The ' magic ' has worked for this small boy-and for numerous others — and ' Peter's Tune,' by Prokofiev, will be our introductory music for this week.
The comments of children on the programme's opening music are often acute and illuminating. One boy said of the ' Village Dance' from Coppelia, by Delibes, the man keeps pushing this music,' while another interpreted the ' Chinese Dance ' by Tchaikovsky as the mechanical noise of a train. To these children the music came as pure sound and conveyed its individual message, irrespective of any suggestions in the title. Hence our reluctance in general, in spite of some requests, to announce its name at the beginning of the week. For stones this week we have three by Philippa Pearce about Judith at cherry time, told today, tomorrow, and on Wednesday by Julia Lang , and two by Margaret Gore about the adventures of Twopence the rabbit, told on Thursday and Friday by Dorothy Smith. They are all introduced by Catherine Edwards. Elizabeth A. Taylor

(To be repeated tomorrow at 11.0 a.m.)
Last week Gwen overheard Edward Fielding telling Isabel bow much he disliked the idea of having a baby in the house. Gwen decided she must leave their flat and find somewhere else to live. Dr. and Mrs. Dale were ignored by Mrs. Sandiman at the golf club. Bill Donaldson, Mrs. Mountford's great-nephew from Australia, called on Mrs. Dale to find out what charities his great-aunt subscribed to. His obvious interest in Mrs. Mountford's money amused Mrs. Dale. Maggs and his pen-friend, Mrs. Dolly, were happy together until Maggs realised she considered they were engaged. He was horrified and consulted Mrs. Morgan and Albert. Albert teased him unmercifully and talked as if the wedding had already been arranged.
