TNDIAN art has become, within the last generation or so, better known in Europe than Indian history. The form in which it is easiest to appreciate is architecture, and this evening Mr. Dalway Turnbull will describe the Buddhist shrines that go back to dates before the Christian Era, the innumerable beauties of the Hindu Temples, and the triumphs of ' Indo-Saracenic ' building. He will also refer to the paintings of the Mogul and Rajput schools.

The Wireless Orchestra
Conducted by The Composer
Overture, The Black Sheep
Leslie Woodgate is one of the young English composers of the present day, most of whose work is strongly influenced by the prevailing enthusiasm for folk song. A distinguished student of the Royal College of Music, he won a Carnegie Award in 1923, when he was exactly twenty-one years of age, probably the youngest composer, who has ever gained that distinction.
The Overture Black Sheep was intended originally as the Overture to a Ballet of the same name. Its characters were to be such time-honoured nursery favourites as King Cole, the Queen of Hearts, Jack and Jill, and the Black Sheep himself, the son of King Cole and the Queen of Hearts. The old nursery song of the Black Sheep plays a leading part in the Overture, and the opening theme stands for the Queen of Hearts. King Cole's tune is the pompous G Minor theme, four beats in the bar, which comes after 'Boys and Girls, come out to play.' The other material is all original, and the Overture is designed in the gayest spirits, as its light-hearted title suggests.

Scene : Iceland
Incidental Music by THE GERSHOM PARKINGTON QUINTET
More than a thousand years ago Iceland was the home of the sagas, the classical folk-stories of the North peoples.
In the sagas, recited to a harp accompaniment at the feasts of these forefathers of ours, the race spirit of the Northmen found its principal artistic expression.
In his adaptation of one of those old stories, John Masefield , the poet and romantic writer, has preserved, besides the dramatic interest of the story, a great deal of its original quality.
