Told by an Am;el
10—'Job'
Cast
and Clive Baxter , Muriel Pavlow , William Trent , Norman Shelley , Lloyd Pearson (by permission of Lee Ephraim ),
Stephen Jack , Norman Wooland
Written and produced by Geoffrey Dearmer
This afternoon the Angel will introduce his two charges, Mark and Prudence, to the great dramatic poem 'Job'.
As the Biblical text is written in the form of drama, little but selection and commentary by the Angel has been found necessary. The play falls naturally into three parts: (1) The Prologue in Heaven ; (2) Job's argument with the Three Comforters ; and (3) the great speech of the Voice in the Whirlwind, followed by Job's humble reply and his final reinstatement in prosperity.
Half an hour is all too little for
' Job ', and only a glimpse of Job's quarrel with the Comforters can be given. Neverthefess, some attempt has been made to distinguish their respective characters and lines of argument.

The advent of Puritanism at the Commonwealth deeply influenced the course of English music at the time. Churches and cathedrals were closed and choirs disbanded, so that what had hitherto been the most important field of activity for the English musician was now denied him.
Despite this prohibition composers did not lack encouragement, for Cromwell himself and many of his associates were ardent music-lovers. Attention was now more concentrated on secular music for the home, such as solo songs and chamber music. It was an age of transition and experiment, and that resourceful and original spirit, Matthew Locke , took the string quartet as a suitable medium for some of his most adventurous flights. Henry Lawes , who was much admired by Milton, was foremost in the sphere of vocal music, in which he took the Italians as h:s model.
Further programmes in this series will be broadcast on Tuesday (National, 6.25), Wednesday (Regional, 9.0), Friday (Regional, 9.35).

An appeal on behalf of THE GROSVENOR HOSPITAL FOR
WOMEN by VIOLET LORAINE
The Grosvenor Hospital for Women was founded in 1866, over seventy years ago. This is the first appeal to be broadcast in aid of its funds.
The number of patients now waiting admission has reached alarming proportions, and the Extension Scheme undertaken at a cost of nearly £10,000 will provide the extra beds so urgently needed, a new and modern operating theatre suite, and other improvements essential for the patients and the nursing staff.
The object of this appeal is to clear away the debt incurred on this New Wing, as well as to increase the income needed for its maintenance, since it is estimated that the new beds will call for an extra fl,800 per annum. Never before has the Hospital needed help so much.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to [address removed]
