Produced by Bernard Walke
This is the first announcement of a St. Hilary play to be printed without the familiar line ' Directed by Filson Young '. His death last April robbed broadcasting of one of its outstanding figures. His belief in the broadcasting possibilities of the sincerity and devotion of the St. Hilary Players first led him to bring them to the microphone. For many years he and Bernard Walke have together produced these moving Cornish miracle plays. Tonight, under Bernard Walke 's production, the performance will follow the lines, now almost a tradition, laid down by him and Filson Young.
