Mrs. MARY ADAMS : 'Huxley (1825-1895),
Knight-errant of Darwinism'
WE very much regret any inconvenience caused to listeners by the alterations in the advertised order of the talks in this series. Owing to the serious illness of Sir J. Arthur Thomson , his talk on T. H. Huxley , announced in The Radio Times to take place on July 24, will be replaced by a talk in tonight's programme on the same subject, by Mrs. Mary Adams.
Wo offer our sincere apologies to our readers, and we feel certain that they will join .us in wishing Sir J. Arthur Thomson a speedy recovery.

ESTHER FISHER
CYRIL SCOTT
, THE songs and pianoforte pieces of Cyril Scott are as popular as those of almost any English composer one could name, not only in his own country, but abroad, particu
: larly in America and Germany. In this respect; he has, to some extent, taken the place of Grieg, who had, and of course still has, a similar popularity. But the compositions of Scott are not confined to these smaller pieces, for lie has written a number of major works, including operas. Of these, one in particular, The Alchemist, has been performed, -indeed was produced, in Germany. He is also a fine pianist, as one would expect from a composer whose writing is so ; essentially pianistic, though he does not appear too frequently in public as a soloist. It is, therefore, natural that he should show a keen interest in the new vogue, or rather revival, of two-piano recitals, and the programme to which he is contributing tonight should prove, on that account, particularly interesting and instructive.
