' The Black Hand ' by Jonathan
The speaker who is broadcasting under the name of ' Jonathan ' was formerly a schoolmaster in South Africa. The extraordinary adventure he is going to talk about belongs to a recognised class of psychic experience, as the end of the story (which must be kept a surprise) should prove. In a word, Jonathan encountered a banshee. Though it was many years'ago that it all happened, he recalls every detail with vividness.

C. P. E. Bach was the second son of Sebastian Bach. Born at Weimar in 1714, he was educated at the Leipzig Thomasschule and the University of Frankfort-on-Oder. From his early days he displayed extraordinary musical gifts and ultimately became one of the formost players of the organ and clavier. Furthermore, he was a prolific composer and was considered one of the advanced modernists of his day. Actually, he did much to lay the foundations of the new forms of sonata and symphony, which were later perfected by Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven. He died at Hamburg in 1788. Symphony No. 2, in C minor
I Andante. 2 Allegro. 3 Andante. 4 Tempestoso. 5 Finale: Maestoso
Scriabin's Second Symphony was written when the composer had just come under the influence of Wagner's music and ideas, and of Nietzsche's philosophy of the Superman. It is not surprising, therefore, that the texture is distinctly Wagnerian and that the music seems to have an underlying programme. The ' slow introduction' of the classical symphony is here enlarged to a whole, self-contained (though quite short) movement. At a first hearing, the most attractive part is the third movement, with its bird-calls and its echoes of Wagner's 'forest murmurs'.
Ⓓ 'You and Your Clothes'
' Some Suggestions for the Broader Figure'
On September 30 that expert on fashion, Alison Settle, gave a broadcast talk on this autumn's fashions, following it up on October 28 with a talk on how to wear them. Today's broadcast is her last in the present series. But many a woman listener will be hoping that this famous fashion-writer and fashion-consultant will be coming to the microphone again in the near future to give more of her very welcome and valuable advice.

Admiral Sir William Goodenough, G.C.B., M.V.O.
One of the fascinations of this series is that each broadcaster speaks with such enthusiasm of the books that he has liked. And to listen to Admiral Goodenough is almost to be sitting in his library with him and to visualise the very books he is talking about, up there on his shelves. 'Great stuff that! ... But shut the door, light the fire, and take the next shelfâ€”Travel and Exploration.'
As one would expect from a man who was President of the Royal Geographical Society from 1930 to 1933 and who met many an author of books on exploration, this is a favourite shelf of his. One would expect him to have a particular love for tales of the sea, and one would not be disappointed. But there are books that deal with neither the sea nor travel, and books of poetry, too, which have kindled a warmth in his heart, and therefore enter this talk.
Many listeners will remember his broadcast on Lord Fisher in the 'I Knew a Man' series, which he gave in June.
