Ⓓ 'The Story of the Canterbury
Cyril Worsley
The Canterbury Treasure is a wonderful platinum casket encrusted with six hundred precious stones, which was presented to Canterbury Cathedral to hold the bread for Holy Communion. It was dedicated by the Dean of Canterbury just a year ago, on All Souls' Day, November 1, 1936. The strange story of how this casket came to be designed will be described over the air this afternoon by the designer.

Solo violoncello, Cassado from the Pavilion, Bournemouth
The Bournemouth Municipal Orchestra is the largest orchestra that has ever been maintained by a municipality. At the beginning of this season its personnel was increased to sixty-one players, all of whom are widely experienced musicians. It goes without saying that experience counts in an orchestra such as this, for not only are they called upon to perform the standard repertoire of classical music and a considerable number of works by modern composers, but they also have to give a good account of themselves in music of a lighter and more frankly popular character.
Bax's Cello Concerto
In an article in the RADIO TIMES Robert Hull summed up Bax's Cello Concerto as follows : The first movement, which opens and closes in a vigorous mood, contains a quiet middle section whose sheer loveliness Bax has rarely surpassed. There is a wealth of romantic beauty in the slow movement, a rhapsody whose title, " Nocturne " gives a sufficient clue to its general trend. The last movement provides a brilliant finale that impresses one by its wealth of invention and marvellous range of instrumental colour.'

© ' Going to the Tropics ' by Lady Burdon
Few have had wider experiences of travel than Lady Burdon, and listeners-especially those about to go to the tropics for the first time-will look forward to this popular broadcaster's talk this afternoon. Lady Burdon has been broadcasting regularly since 1935 when she gave four talks on ' Travels of a Governor's Wife '. In 1910 she married the Acting-Governor of Barbados, and she has described on the air many of her experiences in the West Indies. In 1931, in Government House, Belise, she survived the hurricane in which nearly three thousand people were killed.
