The narration of Sir Thomas Malory spoken by Norman Shelley
In the Winchester text the Arthurian cycle consi&ts of etglhi separate tales. The last, entitled The Mosle Pyleuous Tale of the Morte Arthure Saunz Gwerdon, tells how Sir Aggravayne and Sir Mordred disclosed to King Arthur the love between Sir Lancelot and Queen Guenevere; how this led to strife between Lancelot and Gawayne, and war between Arthur and Mordred; with the death of Arthur, followed by the deaths of Guenevere and Lancelot. It is the most moving, the most majestic of all Malory's tales. To quote Caxton's preface, ' herein may be seen noble chivalry, courtesy, humanity, friendliness, hardiness, love, friendship, cowardice, murder, hate, virtue, and sin. Do after the good and leave the evil, and it shall bring you to good fame and renown.' Douglas Cleverdon

Talk by David Green
As a sequel to his three talks on the formal garden, David Green quotes Stephen Switzer as epitomising the transitional period from the geometrical parterre to what Switzer called ' this farm-like way of gardening,' a back-to-nature cuh which in turn was to lead to the painstakingly contrived 'natural' landscapes oi Capability Brown.
