(From the Acts of the Apostles to the Reformation)
10-St. Augustine
E. F. Jacob , D.Phil., F.R.Hist.S., Professor of Mediæval History,
University of Manchester
Dr. Jacob has been Vice-President of the Historical Association since
1929, the year that he became Professor of Mediaeval History in the University of Manchester. He was Birkbeck Lecturer in Ecclesiastical
History at Trinity College, Cambridge, from 1935 to 1937.
In carrying on the Outline of Church History today, he will discuss the clash of the Roman and the new barbarian world ; the. two families of Goths, and the settlement of the Visigoths in Lower Bulgaria ; their attack, under Alaric, on the Italian territories, and the sack of Rome. He will speak about the enormous influence and prestige of the Romans, which lived on long after their defeat.
As for the Church, he will show how it came to stand for organised Christian society and, after the Christianisation of the Gothic tribes, for the orthodox Christianity against the errors that had been condemned in the early Councils.

as a bank manager sees them
By a London bank manager
Most people who have banking accounts tend to look upon their bank managers as symbols rather than as human beings. If so, we may change our minds when we have heard this talk. The speaker is manager of a large branch of one of the ' big five '. We shall see that he knows more of the world and its inhabitants than things relating to overdrafts.

Public Buildings
Anthony Bertram
Most of us have only the small house or flat that we live in, but we are part-users of many buildings. We often supply some of the money with which they are built and by which they are maintained. We have responsibilities here. Hospitals, churches, town halls, community centres, and so forth are our business, and it is about these public buildings, and design in relation to them, that Anthony Bertram will talk this evening.
The many who have the pamphlet,
' Design in Everyday Things will notice that schools were included among the public buildings that Mr. Bertram is to touch on. When listeners find that schools are not included, let them not think that they have been overlooked. Mr. Bertram will be discussing them next week instead, in his broadcast, Places of Work.'

(Section D)
Led by Marie Wilson
Conducted by Richard Austin
Muriel Brunskill (contralto)
Don Juan was first performed in 1889 at Weimar, while its composer was conductor of the Court Orchestra there, and was enthusiastically received. In its design Don Juan adheres fairly closely to the rondo of classical sonatas and symphonies, and in the varied forms in which the chief themes return, we can follow the adventures of the Don in his crazy search for his ideal of incarnate womanhood. There are four principal themes heard at the outset, all glowing with the youthful ardour of the quest. These are set forth and developed at some length, to form the first section of the work.
The second section of the poem, which is quoted in the score, tells of disillusionment. That is set before us in the music no less vividly than the zest and youthful vigour of the first part, the principal theme of which reappears. It introduces the closing section, representing the tragedy with which Lenau's poem comes to an early end-Don Juan's death and his despair in realising that life has lost its charm for him, that nothing is left but the cold and dark ash-strewn hearth.'
