by DEREK RIGBY CHILDS
Town planning consultant
There are essentially two schools of thought on regional planning: one in favour of accepting the effects of urban drift in Britain on a strategic scale; the other in favour of ' counterdrift,' radical measures to establish a sound balance between north and south. Derek Rigby Childs is the begetter of the counterdrift theory which he first published three years ago in the Architects' Journal. He outlines a possible anatomy for the Government's proposed economic regions.

During the first three decades of this century reproducing pianos could be bought which enabled the owner to hear the playing of famous pianists in his own home. Vast numbers of piano rolls made by every pianist of note still exist and some have been transcribed to tape for the BBC Archives.
Denys Gueroult explains the systems under which the rolls were made and the authenticity of the reproduction obtained.
