An introduction to Professor S. H. Hooke 's talks on The Archaeological Background of the Old Testament
John Garstang , D.Sc., LL.D.,
Rankin Professor of Archaeology,
University of Liverpool
During the last fifteen years Palestine has been an active centre of exploration. Gradually many of the old cities mentioned in the Bible have been brought to light, and the reality of many pages of Bible history has been established in this way. Dr. Garstang will speak about some of these discoveries, in particular that of Jericho; the date of its fall forms the basis of Bible chronology.

Leo Weiner was born in Budapest in 1885 and studied during the years 1901-6 at the Landesakademie, where he later became a professor. Most of Weiner's compositions appear to be in the form of chamber music, with which he made a considerable name for himself. His String Quartet in F sharp minor won the Coolidge Prize in 1921. The Sonata No. 1 in D was published in 1912.

' Food and Fitness '
' Exercise, Why and How '
Major A. H. Gem
The first part of this series dealt mainly with nutrition. Last week Dr. Carnwath linked it to the talks that are to follow by describing the relationship of physical culture to nutrition, and tonight Major Gem is to give the first of the talks on physical culture-or, in other words, exercise. He will explain why and how we should take exercise, especially today, when so many of us do so little walking. Far too many British men and women regard exercise with the same air of boredom as getting up in the morning, and this is a pity. Ten minutes' physical culture a day makes all the difference.

Led by Laurance Turner
Conducted by Clarence Raybould
Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco was born at Florence in 1895 and studied under the famous Italian composer Ildebrando Pizzetti. He has composed a considerable amount of music, chiefly choral and vocal. Apart from numerous settings of Shakespeare's works, Castelnuovo-Tedesco has written five overtures inspired by The Taming of the Shrew, Twelfth Night, The Merchant of Venice, Julizis Ccesar , and A Winter's Tale. Of these, however, The Taming of the Shrew is the only one that is known to English listeners, but it is one that is now quite frequently broadcast.

Reginald Paul Pianoforte Quartet: David Wise (violin) ; Watson Forbes (viola) ; John Moore (violoncello) ;
Reginald Paul (pianoforte)
In 1906 William Yeates Hurlstone died at the age of thirty. He had already proved himself a highly gifted composer and one of the most promising of the younger British school. Hurlstone's first work was a set of ' Five Valses ' for piano, which were published when he was only nine years of age. At eighteen he won a scholarship at the Royal College of Music and studied composition under Stanford for several years.
The Piano Quartet in E minor, which was published posthumously, is the composer's most elaborate chamber work, and although it shows considerable individuality, it also displays certain influences of Brahms.
