THIS evening Mr. Ernest Newman , who is a -L notable new accession to the number of the B.B.C.'s regular critics, gives his first weekly talk. One of the most forceful and trenchant of writers on music, he has made his weekly articles in The Sunday Times as important a feature as any in music criticism ; and his books on Wagner created a sensation in the musical world. Listeners will welcome the opportunity of having him as their guide to the broadcast music of the next week.

rpHERE was a time when hearty people were inclined to despise Badminton — as once they despised lawn tennis-as a soft and ladylike game. This view has long been abandoned, and Badminton is now justly recognized as a fast and exciting game which provides an ideal means of keeping fit. Mr. Bisgood, who gives this evening's talk, is not only a Badminton enthusiast, but a cricketer who has played for Somerset.

IN the Sacred Festival Drama Parsifal, Wagner's last work, the composer treats of the legendary relic of the Eucharist, the Holy Grail (the cup which was used at the Last Supper, and in which the Saviour's blood was received at the Crucifixion).
In this extract we have the solemn entry of the Knights as they gather to partake of the Love Feast, when the Grail is unveiled.

—I, by Mr. and Mrs. G. D. H. COLE
THE idea of broadcasting a serial is not a new one, but the present series promises to be particularly notable. Tonight, and on the following three Saturdays at the same time, Mr. and Mrs. Cole will broadcast a new and unpublished detective story, and listeners will have the opportunity o{ indulging in clue-hunting to their hearts' desire. And it goes without saying that a detective story by the authors of ' The Brooklyn Murders' and ' The Death of a Millionaire ' will contain enough thrills to satisfy the most ardent devotee.
