C.B., O.B.E., D.Litt., Keeper of the MSS. and Egerton Librarian,
British Museum
In his second talk on January 18, H. I. Bell , Keeper of the MSS. and Egerton Librarian of the British Museum, discussed chiefly the versions of the New Testament. Today in his concluding talk he is to discuss chiefly the versions of the Old Testament.
He will deal with the Hebrew Bible, the utility of the Greek version, the formation of the Septuagint version, later Greek translations, recent discoveries. Again, he will say something of the early Latin versions. St. Jerome's Vulgate-the Bible of the Middle Ages.
In conclusion, he will stress the reassuring effect of recent discoveries as regards the New Testament. The text seems broadly to be soundcorruptions and variants usually affect only minor details.

chosen and presented by (3) Leonard Feather
For over a year Leonard Feather, who has devised and is to compere this programme, has been contributing 'Tempo di Jazz' to the Radio Times. He is only twenty-two and speaks five languages. He used to be in the film business-scenario writing-and has worked on film papers in Germany and France. In the last eighteen months he has crossed the Atlantic eight times, and in these journeys from England to New York, Chicago, and back he has actually travelled 25,000 miles in the interests of jazz. He once broadcast in New York, being dragged on in the middle of an amateur show and expected to do something.
In his broadcast today he is going to give some examples of 'Soft Swing' and he will try and prove that Swing music has not necessarily got to be fast or loud. Among those who will be heard on records are those great swingers Red Norvo, Duke Ellington, Benny Carter, and Louis Armstrong with their orchestras. Mildred Bailey will be heard, too, singing with Red Norvo's band.
Listeners will remember that last autumn Leonard Feather devised and compered three programmes in the series 'Evergreens of Jazz'. He is trying to make Swing Music appeal to people who have not as yet expressed any interest in it, and he will put on all sorts of records to this end.

' Golfing Temperaments and Golfing Wardrobes'
Poppy
Wingate Poppy Wingate , the famous golf professional and lecturer, was born into a family in which golf was not only a hobby but a job-her father, two brothers, and an uncle all being professionals. Not very surprisingly, this young Englishwoman followed in their footsteps.
At an early age she started an apprenticeship in her brother's shop, and spent many years studying the game and everything to do with it. She is the only woman to compete in professional tournaments. For three years she ran a golf school in London, has spent considerable time designing outfits, and lectures on golf and golf clothes in different parts of the country.
