The Plays adapted for the microphone and produced by Ivor Herbert McClure.
An Unwilling Martyr
A Jest in One Act by Anton Tchehov.
Translated by Constance Garnett.
The People in the Play are:
The Father of a Family.
The action takes place in a flat in St. Petersburg.
A Fool and his Money
A Wayside Comedy by Laurence Housman.
Tim, a Meditative Ragamuffin.
Tony, a Younger Ragamuffin.
The play takes place at dusk on the sort of road on which one does not want to be alone after dark.
Was Guy Fawkes really Guy Fawkes or another person of the same name? This problem is set before you in the new microphone play, "Johnson".
(Ivor Herbert McClure)
To reveal the cast now would be to give away the secret.

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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
