The year 1815 was a period of great creative activity for Schubert, who was then eighteen years of age. Despite the fact that he was assistant master in his father's school, he found time to complete his Second Symphony in B flat, to compose the whole of the Symphony No. 3 in D, to begin his Piano Sonata No. i in E flat (unfinished), to compose the String Quartet in G minor, two masses, four operatic works, numerous small choral works and piano pieces, and finally 144 songs. At least twenty of these songs, including such things as 'Der Erlkonig 'An die Nachtigall ',
' Die Mondnacht ', are among the finest of his efforts in this direction.
Further programmes in this series will be broadcast as follows : Monday (Regional, 9.45), Tuesday (National,
6.25), Wednesday (Regional, 8.0), Thursday (National, 10.20).

An appeal on behalf of the MEDICAL WORK OF THE CHURCH IN CENTRAL TANGANYIKA, by the Rt. Rev. the Lord
Disease in Central Africa is a vast problem which the Church in Central Tanganyika is trying to solve by caring for the sick and needy in ten hospitals in different parts of the country. Some are made only of mud and wattle, others of rough stone from the hills around, but each of them treats 10,000 people every year.
The work is crippled for lack of money. In one hospital there are not enough beds, and the patients have to sleep two in a bed and on the floor with only a goatskin to lie on. In another hospital there is no maternity ward, and the mothers incur the grave risk of catching horrible sores and diseases from other patients. In another the nurse has to work in her sun helmet all day long because the roof is not sun-proof. (This hospital needs entirely rebuilding.) In another, women and children are flocking to the nurse for treatment, but there is not enough money to provide simple medicines. Lepers are also being treated at every hospital.
David Livingstone spoke to the world of his day of the open sore of Africa. That sore-in the form today of sickness and disease-waits to be healed. £10,000 is needed.

'The Cut' by Lord DUNSANY read by the Author
From Lord Dunsany one gets the unusual in larger measure than from any other living writer, but it is doubtful if he has offered to listeners anything more original than this story of his which he is to tell at the microphone tonight. It concerns a dog that might have remained an ordinary dog if its master hadn't taught it tricks. Taking a penny to the man in the village who sold newspapers was nothing, and bringing back a newspaper was nothing -it just made the dog wag its tail. If its master had stopped at that, if he hadn't been vainglorious and taught the dog a trick with a shilling, all would have been well. ' The penny might just as well have been a lump of sugar. But once the dog began to see the difference between what the various coins could do, everything was altered ... the dog had begun to think. Tim was his name. And one day, he got tired of his tricks and slipped out of his master's house and went off on a long walk : and then all the trouble began.'
