The 154th Renewal of the Derby Stakes
A running commentary by Geoffrey Gilbey and Quintin Gilbey from the Grandstand,
Commentaries on the running for the Blue Riband of the Turf-the best-known race in the world-will be given by the two famous racing journalists, the brothers Geoffrey and Quintin Gilbey , who broadcast commentaries on the St. Leger of ten years ago and created a stir with a radio discussion on betting in 1931. Geoffrey, who gave the commentary on the first Derby ever broadcast (in 1927) and the commentary on the Grand National of 1928, is one of the most versatile personalities in the world of sport. He went to Eton, got a half-blue for running at Oxford, served in the Rifle Brigade during the war, made his name as a racing journalist, owns racehorses (his two-year-old Minaret may run in the race preceding the Derby), and yet his main interest in life is his work for the Prisoners' Aid Society, in connection with Wormwood Scrubs Prison. His younger brother was also at Eton. Last year he wrote racing articles for leading newspapers and published ' Racing for Fun ', which has been described as one of the best books on the turf.
On Friday (at 3.15 Regional) they will give commentaries on the first Oaks ever to be broadcast. It is a classic race for fillies only, run over the identical course of 1 miles at Epsom.

'The Pastoral Symphony'
Beethoven's Symphony No. 6 in F, ' The Pastoral ', is one of the very few works to which the composer outlined a programme. He said that the music was to be considered
' more the expression of sentiment than painting '. Berlioz declared that this symphony affected him more deeply than any of the others.

A Great Work
Brahms's Variations on a Theme by Haydn is one of the greatest works of its kind, showing a sense of beauty and proportion and an ingenuity of treatment that remain as fresh and expressive today as when it was first performed in 1873. The climax of the work is the finale, which is a magnificent passacaglia, the ground or repeated bass of which is derived from the opening Haydn theme (the ' Chorale St. Antonii ').
' Death and Transfiguration'
Strauss's ' Death and Transfiguration ' is divided into four sections: (1) the sick man lies in his bed and dreams of ' childhood's golden day ' ; (2) then comes a fierce, delirious fight with Death. Once again there follows stillness ; (3) the dying man reviews all' his past life. At length there comes a briefer, fiercer struggle, in which Death strikes its final blow ; (4) the stillness of death is succeeded by the Transfiguration.
