In the first (October 10-October 31) Dr. Percy Scholes , who is on one of his rare visits to this country, will tackle that hardest of all problems to the ordinary listener, the music composed by people living today.

The first of the autumn broadcasts in this series comes on the air this evening with Valentine Williams as chairman. The author of 'Clubfoot' will continue throughout the series to preside over these now widely-known informal and impromptu discussions of topics of the moment by various groups of speakers.
Valentine Williams has a deserved reputation not only as an author but as a broadcaster and a journalist. Many listeners will remember his talk in the series 'My Best News Story', and his four microphone appearances in the summer of this year when he took part in the 'New Homes for Old' discussions. His autobiography, 'The World of Action', was recently published.

1—' The City of Lyons'
Presented by Moray McLaren
A broadcast from Lyons, in the very heart of France, opens the new series of programmes which will be given from time to time during the autumn and winter under the title ' Burope at Home '. These programmes are designed as a sequel to the 'European Exchange ' series broadcast last year, but are more ambitious. They will all be from abroad, and will bring to the microphone typical folk of the cities concerned to describe the social atmosphere they live in and how they pass their days in it.
Lyons is not only a great industrial centre, but is far-famed for its cooking even in a country of gastronomes.
