Regional Variations (2)
For the third year in succession, Sydney Baynes and his Band are to do the whole of the accompanying for Radiolympia, which opens on August 14, and is to run until August 24. In place of his march, ' Here Goes', which used to be the signature tune for all ' Music-Hall ' programmes, the famous composer of the Destiny Waltz is writing a new march for the occasion. Those who go to Radiolympia and those who listen will hear ' Off we Go' for the first time.
Sydney Baynes is above the weather just now, for he has just won a golf competition-the Friern Trophy, presented by the North Middlesex Golf Club, of which he is a member. But he refuses to disclose his handicap.

by BETTY HUMBY
Betty Humby won a scholarship at the Royal Academy of Music at the age of eleven, which was a feat without precedent. Miss Humby studied first under Matthay and then under Schnabel in Germany. Her first broadcast was at the age of.sixteen. She has played at numerous Prom concerts under Sir Henry Wood , and at concerts in the chief provincial musical centres under various famous conductors. Recently Miss Humby toured Scandinavia and the Netherlands, giving recitals and broadcasts with great success.
A Radio Play by JAMES HILTON AND BARBARA BURNHAM
Based on the Novel by James Hilton
This imaginative play, so different from the same author's quiet and sentimental Mr. Chips, made as big a hit as ' Chips ' when it was first broadcast in June last year. There is in it all the grip and fascination that Guy Boothby Sonjured up in his Pharos the Egyptian ; there is, consciously or no, in James Hilton 's Conway some of the characteristics and appeal of Lawrence of Arabia.
Can a greater thrill be imaginable than the abduction of an aeroplane with her convoy of passengers, and their landing in the Valley of Lost Horizon in the wilds of Tibet ? Here is romance and adventure of the highest order to keep the listener keyed up. A monastery on the roof of the world. A High Lama with a secret. A hidden civilisation where least expected and there for purposes not remotely guessed. And an hour's entertainment for all who choose to hear it, in the form of one of the most cleverly constructed of all radio plays.
The part of the High Lama is to be taken by Esmé Percy, who will be remembered for his strong characterisation of the part of Ambrose Applejohn. A new play by Barbara Couper , who plays the lady missionary, will be broadcast in a week or two. Barbara Burnham , who adapted Lost Horizon with James Hilton from Hilton's novel, also collaborated with him in the adaptation of Mr. Chips.
' Lost Horizon ' will be repeated in the Regional programme tomorrow night

GEORGE PARKER (baritone)
César Cui's father was a French officer who fought in Russia, and was left behind during Napoleon's retreat from - Moscow in 1812. He settled in that country and married a Lithuanian lady. His son was born in 1835, and. like many other Russian musicians of his day, followed two occupations, for he entered the School of Military Engineering and became a leading authority on fortification.
