(From the Acts of the Apostles to the Reformation)
9-Church Councils
The Rev. Canon C. E. Raven , D.D.,
Regius Professor of Divinity,
Cambridge
The speaker in today's broadcast has been Canon of Ely since 1932. He was previously Canon of Liverpool for eight years, and was Chancellor from 1931 to 1932, since when he has been Chancellor Emeritus. He is a distinguished lecturer, the author of a number of publications, and a well-known broadcaster. In 1933 he gave a talk in the series ' God and the World Through Christian Eyes ' ; in 1934 four talks in ' Pillars of the English Church ' ; and in 1935 four talks in ' The Way to God.' In discussing Church Councils today he will speak of the councils appointed to deal with Paul of Samosta and lead up to the first General Council at Niceea-its occasion, composition, procedure, and results. He will deal with some of the numerous councils that followed, and discuss their effects.

Leader, J. Mouland Begbie
Conductor, Guy Warrack
Glinka's overture and incidental music to his friend Kukolnik's tragedy Prince Kholmsky contain some of his best work. Yet it was a hurried composition — the whole of the music was written in less than a month-rushed through on the eve of the play's production. As it was, the "entr'actes-' each ', as Tchaikovsky said, 'a little picture painted by a master hand '-were not ready in time and, as the piece was given only three performances, were never performed in the theatre.
But though Kukolnik's play has disappeared so completely that even its plot is unknown, Glinka's music has survived just as Schubert's music has long outlived Wilhelmine von Chezy's Rosamunde.

Peter Davies
Peter Davies does not believe that everything new is an improvement on everything that is being swept away. For instance, he regrets the disappearance of Victorian London, and the rise of huge flats in place of the sedate old houses. He likes the atmosphere of the Victorian interior, with its homely assortment of furniture and ornaments, its cosy open fire and dim, intimate lighting. Is it not time that this Lost Cause found a champion ?

Town and Country Planning
' Our Streets'
Anthony Bertram
In this talk Anthony Bertram will drive home his argument that planning should be a comprehensive and national affair, and when it comes down to our streets they should be one thing, one design-the lettering controlled, colour schemes in harmony, and so forth.
It is up to Group Leaders (and this series is primarily planned for Discussion Groups after all) to learn the views of their members. As another Discussion Group series, ' Clear Thinking', indicates, we should think for ourselves. Do members agree that planning should be on a national scale, or do they think this would kill local characteristics that are worth preserving?

Martinu studied at the Prague Conservatoire under Josef Suk. In 1923, he settled in Paris, and studied under Albert Roussel. His Second String Quartet was performed in 1928 at the I.S.C.M. Festival at Siena, and his Quintet was produced in September of the same year in America, at one of Mrs. Coolidge's concerts. He has written several operas, a concerto for cello and orchestra, a symphony, a concerto for viola and orchestra, and many other works. Martinu's style, which at first was much influenced by modern French idiom, is now more characteristic of the country of his origin-Czechoslovakia.
