A Play in One Act by HAROLD BRIGHOUSE Played by THE STATION RADIO PLAYERS
Scene : The garden of an old house in a Brittany fishing village.
The village barber's reputation as a physician rests largely upon a professional manner and the credulity of his village patients. The arrival of a real doctor from Paris fills him with apprehension, since it must soon become clear that one of them is a charlatan. Jean does his best to advertise the doctor as a quack, but finds the new-comer is as well versed in human nature as in medicine ; he is also very successful in cases of heart trouble !

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.
