Guy Ropartz , whose 'Cello Sonata in G minor, written in 1894, will be heard this afternoon, was born in 1864 and comes of an old Breton family. His master was Cesar Franck whose declared disciple he is. These two influences, the Breton and the Franck, have coloured all his music ; yet although Franck is his model and Breton the root of his inspiration, his composition shows strong originality, combined with a character that is both individual and wholly French.

The Problem as an Industrial Doctor sees It
T.O. Garland

This is the fifth talk in this series and the third dealing with the conditions of different sections of the community. This week the subject is nutrition as it affects the worker. The talk will be given by a doctor who is medical officer in one of our largest and most advanced modern factories. He will describe the problem of nutrition and the worker as he sees it. He is responsible for the health of the workers employed by his factory, and has intimate knowledge of nutrition, not only as it affects men actually in work but - since he interviews candidates for a job, many of whom have possibly been unemployed for some time - also workers who are unemployed. He will speak of the conclusions he has drawn about the problem of nutrition as it affects working-class families.

Listeners may remember that on March 19 Captain White-Knox, of St. John Ambulance Association gave a general talk on the importance of first-aid knowledge, ' Have you been in an accident ? ' A few days later he broadcast some first-aid ' Do's and Don'ts' on the eve of the Easter Holidays. This evening, on the eve of the Coronation and Whitsun Holidays, he will repeat some of his hints, and give listeners a list of various centres in Great Britain where they may obtain training for themselves.

by George Bernard Shaw read by G. R. Schjelderup
Time: 1916. Place: Somewhere in No Man's Land, North-Eastern France. Dramatis Personæ : Wilhelm II, German Emperor, King of Prussia, Margrave of Brandenburg, etc., etc., and a little French girl ' much too young to be up at a quarter to twelve in the middle of the night'. Hardly any story-writer who hit on that idea could fail to produce something striking. And it is hardly necessary to say that Shaw produced a tale that is much more than merely striking, a tale that brilliantly avoids all the pitfalls that surround such a theme.
'The Emperor and the Little Girl' was written in 1916 for the Vestiaire Marie-Jose , a Belgian war charity for children.
