THIS afternoon's play is too generally well known to require anything in the nature of elaborate explanation. It has been specially adapted from the point of view of children's requirements, and the cast will include such well-Imown artists as Miss Dorothy Holmes -Gore, Miss Lillian Harrison , and Mr. Douglas Burbidge. Sliakespeare never wrote anything more full of the atmosphere of high summer and of the English country of his day than this delightful mingling of comedy and fairy-tale.

Tennyson's Maud has more than once been broadcast in full. The first song this evening is that of the lover who hears Maud singing ' a passionate ballad, gallant and gay, a martial song like a trumpet's call.
The,Oak Tree Bough (poem by Edward Thomas ) tells of the beasts and birds that, trapped by the keeper, hang on the dead bough.
Cyril Scott 's song is an adaptation of an old
Frenchmelodyand of the verses'Au clairde lalune.'
The Sergeant's Song (poem by Hardy) is a satirical ditty of the time of ' Boney,' postulating various unlikely events, such as 'When lawyers strive to heal a breach,' ' When ... rogues are only found in jail,' and so on and stoutly declaring that only then will Boney ' pounce down, And march his men on London Town.'
