A Comedy in One Act by Conrad Davies.
Played by the Station Radio Players
That it is the more homely virtues that most often win a man's heart (especially when he is shrewd and capable of seeing reason) is the theory of Marged, when John Y Celyn comes one evening in the Springtime to the Welsh village where she lives to visit her pretty and luxury-loving sister, Mary.
For a very good reason, Marged, the unnoticed, but clever sister, wishes to test her theory; and it is by her contrivance, with the unwitting aid of her dear, deaf Aunt Betsy, that John is sitting alone with her in the parlour of their small farmhouse.
Marged, a young girl:
Betsy, her aunt:

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.
