' God Save The King '
The Story of our National Anthem by H. E. PiGGOTT
Everyone knows our National Anthem, but few know that It was the first of al) national anthems, and fewer still know the history of it. In this talk Mr. Piggott will speak of its origin three hundred years or more ago. He will tell how it came to be sung on different occasions, and he will play to listeners the various versions that there have been. Not the least interesting information in his talk is the part that a man actually called John Bull took in the making of the best-known anthem in the world, ' God save the King '.

The Rt. Hon. Winston Churchill,
Few statesmen can be more conscious of the 'Responsibilities of Empire' than the speaker who tonight is to talk primarily to the Empire and secondly to listeners in Great Britain. The last time he broadcast was in the'India'series two years ago, when he spoke as one of the most persistent and relentless critics of the Government's India policy. From the time he served with the Malakand Field Force in 1897, attached to the 31st Punjab Infantry, Mr. Churchill, though he may have changed his political affiliations, has never changed his Imperialistic views in .a long and brilliant political life.

Our Hunting Fathers, A Symphonic Cycle for Soprano and Orchestra
1 Rats away! 2 Messallina. 3 Dance of Death
Epilogue and Funeral March
(Soloist, SOPHIE WYSS)
Benjamin Britten's 'Our Hunting Fathers' was first performed at the Norwich Music Festival last September. Described as a 'Symphonic Cycle' for soprano solo, the words are written or selected by W.H. Auden. It is in five parts, including Prologue and Epilogue, and the music well reflects the satirical character of the words. (Soloist, AUBREY BRAIN> )
Leighton Lucas, who is now conducting the Markova-Dolin Ballet, is the composer of a number of important orchestral and chamber works, including 'Masque of the Sea' (performed at Queen's Hall in 1929), Concertino for violin, 'cello, and wind orchestra (1929), Concerto for string quartet and orchestra (1929), and a Requiem Mass (in memoriam, Elgar, Delius, and Holst). In the 'Sinfonia brevis', the solo horn is accompanied by ten instruments: piccolo, flute, cor anglais, saxophone, piano, harp, xylophone (or drums), viola, 'cello, and bass. The composer has described his Sinfonia as being largely 'an experiment in orchestral textures', and an attempt to convey the characteristic effects of Javanese music by means of modern European instruments.
Herman Darewski is to give his first studio broadcast with a band, atso his hrst dance session, on the eve of his departure for Brtdhngton tomorrow, and it is appropriate that listeners win hear his signaturetune, ' The Train ', arranged by himself from ' Back to those happy days '. It introduces sound effects of a train steaming in and out. At the end of the programme listeners may weH imagine that they are seeing this popular conductor and his band oft to the Yorkshire coast, where at the Spa Royat Hall, Bridlington, they are to provide entertainment for twenty weeks for the eleventh consecutive season.
