British History-I
' The King and -the Archbishop '
RHODA POWER
' Of the royal and ecclesiastical church customs, he obtained such as were good ; but those which had been brought in for the dishonour of the clergy, he pruned away.... that they might not strike their roots deep.'
This was written about Thomas a Becket, Archbishop of Canterbury, by a man who lived at the same time as he did and knew him.
Today Rhoda Power is to tell listeners something of Henry II's quarrel with a Becket. The broadcast of Murder in the Cathedral the other week makes this a very topical talk.

' Living Things : Their Forms and Parts'
I-Winter in Town A. D. PEACOCK , D.Sc., F.R.S.E., Professor of Natural History, University College, Dundee, the University of St. Andrews
Folk are inclined to think that the town is not a good place for learning about plants and animals at any time, especially during the winter. An experiment will test the matter. Listeners are invited to collect as many plants in flower as they can. Dr. Peacock is going to do the same ; then he and they can compare notes. Both Dr. Peacock and Dr. Garry, who share these talks, invite listeners to write to them if they have any questions to ask about these lessons. Letters should be addressed to them c/o Broadcasting House, London, W.i.

Edwin Fischer was born in 1866 at Basle. He was educated at the Baslo
Gymnasium, and studied music first at the Conservatoire there and later in Berlin. Mr. Fischer has played with most of the leading orchestral organisations in Germany, Holland, and Switzerland. For some time he was conductor of the Liibeck Symphony Concerts and of the Munich Bach Society. He has been given an honorary degree at Cologne University. During the summer Mr. Fischer holds a master-class at
Potsdam.
Sibelius's Symphony No. I in E minor was written in 1899. Though a work of great individuality, its style belongs essentially to that of nineteenth century romantic composers, say, of Tchaikovsky, whose influence is discernible here. The Symphony No. 2 in D, composed in 1902, shows Sibelius striking out on new lines. Although this symphony is cast in the usual four movements, each movement, particularly the first, is designed for the most part on new principles of musical form. Instead of the announcement of two or three self-contained melodies that are developed and then restated, Sibelius begins with melodic fragments and then proceeds to combine them into a melodic whole in the course of the movement. The procedure is really the reverse of the classical and romantic methods of symphonic construction.
