In this the second broadcast in the revival of a popular series, Ben Bennison , well known to thousands of readers of the Press as a boxing critic, will give a review of last year's boxing, particularly topical in view of this morning's Farr-Braddock contest, the first big fight of the New Year.
Then. some well-known footballer who has been playing in the fourth round of the F.A. Cup this afternoon in London will tell listeners how the play for the Cup is going. This will link up with the next item in the programme-the recording of a commentary on whichever match in the fourth round was broadcast to Empire listeners this afternoon.

Ravel's Spanish Rhapsody consists of four short movements scored for a full modern orchestra, including two harps, celesta, and sarrusophone, all of which are used with restraint and a remarkable feeling for contrast and variety of tone colour. The first movement, ' Prelude to the Night', is full of the languor and poetry of a Spanish night. The second movement is in the form of a Malaguena, a graceful dance characterised by subtle rhythms, curious changes of mood, and expressive play of fan and castanet.
The third movement is a Habanera, a Spanish dance that is said to have come from Africa by way of Cuba. The music is marked ' rather slow and with a weary rhythm '. The fourth movement, 'The Fair ', is the most elaborate of the four and the music is a beautiful and vivid tone painting of the glittering brilliance and boisterous spirits of a Spanish fair. Sensuous colour and atmosphere are the chief characteristics of the Spanish Rhapsody. To this end Ravel has used the technique of impressionism with consummate skill and sensitive artistry.
