ANITA DESMOND (Soprano); RICHARD FORD
(Baritone); THE WIRELESS ORCHESTRA, ducted by JOHN ANSELL
ERNANI tells the story of a bandit chief who is really an outlawed Duke. He loves
Elvira, who unwillingly has been betrothed to another. She has a third suitor, the King of Spain. In the extract we are to hear, Elvira's betrothed finds in her presence both the King and the bandit, and bewails alike her inconstancy
(as he supposes), and his folly in believing her vows.
CHERUBINO, the lovelorn, youthful page in The Marriage of Figaro, worships his mistress, the Countess, but has an eye, too, for pretty Susanna, her maid. The Count, who also is attracted by the maid, finds Cherubino in her company more than once, and decides pack him off to join the Army.
In this Air Figaro, the Count's valet, chaffs the boy, who is not a little perturbed at this new turn of events.

A Play by MARTIN FLAVIN
Presented by STUART VINDEN
From Birmingham
An island in the South Seas. A lew dune screens the beach. To the eastward is a stunted and oddly twisted coco palm and confronting it a conspicuous and grotesquely shaped formation of a coral rock. The late afternoon sun is hot and glaring when a boat is beached, and in single file three men approach. One of them, MacGregor. looks long and appraisingly at the palm, and from it to the rock, measuring the ground between with his eye.
