Description: Mysterious four-note motif in the low brass announces the film; followed by a dialogue between high and low brass; there is a rising gesture as the words "The Radio Pictures Broadcast Special" appear on screen from left to right
On-screen: Title over the image of a dark seascape
Analysis: Although there is a pedal on E, it is destabilized by the Bb; diminished harmonies prevail
