This afternoon the Leggiero Quintet makes its first appearance before the microphone. The members of this Quintet are all well-known broadcasters, both as soloists and members of other light music and chamber music combinations. The Quintet consists of Edward Walker (flute), Reginald Kell (clarinet), Gilbert Vinter (bassoon), Frederick Grinke (violin), and John Cockerill (harp).
Probably the most important person in this Quintet is Gilbert Vinter , who will be responsible for all the special arrangements. It was his own idea to form a specifically broadcasting unit of five virtuosos which would devote itself to light music by the great composers. Vinter, who knows all his colleagues, intimately, scores for each one individually, at the same time calculating his effects in terms of the microphone and not in those of the concert hall.

The Place, on the terrace of the Palace of Whitehall, overlooking the Thames
Cast (in order of speech)
(by permission of Norman Marshall )
In tonight's revival of the Dark Lady of the Sonnets, which was broadcast in April, Lena Ashwell is again taking the part of Queen Elizabeth. She will be remembered by an older generation of playgoers as one of the greatest dramatic actresses the British stage has ever produced.
The part of Shakespeare is to be taken by one of the foremost of our younger actors who recently scored a big personal success as the lead in Satyr at the Shaftesbury. He has played a season at the Old Vic and is one of our few actors to have
.played a season in Paris, in the ' Compagnie des Quinze '.
