Until last year the Persian desert was for the tourist virgin. country, but in the summer holidays of 1936 Evert Barger and a party of twenty British students crossed the Dasht-i-Kavir by car. This morning Mr. Barger will describe the careful preparations necessary before the party could make the journey with enjoyments, and above all with safety. He will describe the adventures of the party during their eight-weeks' tour, and give some account of the country they passed through, and of the efforts of an Eastern people to profit from their knowledge of the West.

By a Door-to-Door Salesman
The idea behind this series is to show Mr. Everyman and his wife and children and servants as they are seen by people who call at their house in a professional or business capacity. The rooms are not turned inside out to impress an important visitor-they and their occupants are seen as they really are.

A Pot-Pourri by Julius Buerger
The BBC Chorus
(Section C) and The BBC
Theatre Orchestra
Conducted by Stanford Robinson
Music knows no national frontiers, yet folk music almost invariably is as characteristic as a flag. Fascinating music it is too, full of melody and rhythm, and expressive of the soil and the joys and pains of love. Dr. Buerger has collected the folk music of eleven countries : England, Italy, Germany, Czechoslovakia, France, Poland, Norway, Spain, Austria, Russia, and Hungary, and in this programme, which was first broadcast on May 3 and 4, 1936, he has welded this medley of tunes into an hour's pot-pourri. An interesting feature of this broadcast is that the songs will be sung in the language of their origin.
' A Festival of Folk Music' was broadcast in the National programme on Sunday
