' Signal Beacons of Bygone Days '
Alan Ivimey
Alan Ivimey , who will be remembered most recently for his twelve talks on the City of London, has made a special study of England's many beacons, and is going to talk about the fascination of beacon hunting, and how it can be made the object of many outdoor excursions.
When the beacons were last lit on a grand scale for the Silver Jubilee celebrations of 1935, Alan Ivimey received letters from all over the British Isles describing the local beacons. It is many years since the beacons of England flared their warnings of strife and invasion, though once they formed as important a feature of national defence as does ' A.R.P.' today.

Leader, Alfred Cave
Conducted by Leslie Heward
Felix White (born 1884) is a self-taught musician with markedly individual creative talent. His Second Rhapsody, his fourteenth orchestral work, composed last year, is in free variation form, and is based on three Irish airs from the Petrie Collection: a love song, ' 0, Peggy of the fair hair ', an ancient clan march, and a keen or lament. Writing in 1915 about folk song, Stanford described this keen as ' a specimen of the finest type of wild Celtic imagination.'

ORCHESTRE RAYMONDE

Regional Programme Wales

Conductor, Walter Goehr
The Orchestre Raymonde, formed in 1933 as a studio orchestra for recordings by a well-known gramophone company, has been broadcasting since 1934. Of all the light orchestras on the air it is probably the most serious in character, and makes a speciality of programmes of the lighter works of the great masters.

Tonight's Soloists
Benno Moiseiwitsch is one of the greatest pianists living. He was only nine years old when he won the Rubinstein prize for piano playing as a pupil of the Imperial Academy of Music in his native city of Odessa. He stayed there for five years, later going to Vienna under the maestro Leschetizky. He played at his first Queen's Hall concert in London in 1909, and scored the first success of many that have endeared him to his public over here.
Joan Hammond , who is Australian-born, studied at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, and played in the Philharmonic and Conservatorium Orchestras in Sydney for four years. As well as her musical career Joan Hammond has found time to be one of the leading women golfers of Australia, and to work as a journalist.
Frank Titterton began his singing career as an amateur, taking tenor roles in Gilbert and Sullivan productions by the Birmingham Opera Company. He later studied singing seriously with Ernesto Baraldi and Charles Victor. He was one of the sixteen British soloists selected to sing at the Sir Henry Wood Jubilee Concert at the Albert Hall , and recently sang at the Handel Festival at Alexandra Palace.
