A Play in One Act by Daphne Steward.
Played by the Station Radio Players
Boris is an Alsatian wolf-hound, the pet and companion of Stella Dixon, wife of a busy young doctor. A policeman has tactfully warned Jasper Dixon that the dog has attacked some people, and he breaks the news to his wife that Boris must be put on a chain. Jasper is called out unexpectedly to a case, Susan, the maid, goes to bed with a headache, and Stella, alone with Boris, is suddenly stricken with fear by her dog's strange behaviour.
Scene: The drawing-room in the Dixon's house, on a wet, chilly 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
50s, you can navigate by issue.
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.
