"THE LONG PACK."
A Dramatic Tale of Northumberland.
Alice, Richard, Edward,. A
The scene of this tale is Lee- Hall in Northumberland.
Alice is left alone in charge of the house during the absence, in India, of her Master, Col. Ridley.
It is known that there is some very valuable plate in this house, and therefore Alice has instructions not to permit strangers to enter.
One winter's night a well-dressed stranger with a curiously shaped long pack called at thn house, and finding ho could not secure lodgings there for tho night asked if he might leave his pack there till the next day as it was very heavy. Alice becomes suspicious of what the pack might contain, and calls in the help of an old retainer, Richard, and a young farm hand about the place, Edward. Edward in his zeal decides the best way to prove what is in the pack is to thrust his blunderbuss, " Copenhagen '' intc it. He does so, and blood flows from the pack. They discover the body of a man inside. They put two and two together and decide that this was meant to be the prelude to a planned attack upon the house. They make preparations to withstand it. The play ends when the faithful three with the help of their neighbours repulse an attack by armed men winch takes place later that evening.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
