Cast (in the order of their appearance) :
ACT I., SCENE I.-Christopher Jefferson's office at Spring Bank Mill. A large window overlooks the yard where the tall chimneys of the Mill can be seen. The office is plainly furnished with the usual reference and letter files hung round the walls, and a speaking-tube lies on the roll-top desk. It is eleven o'clock on a warm July morning and Stephen Anthony is seated at the desk busy with the morning's mail.
ACT 1., SCENE 2.-The same as in Scene 1, two hours later. Jefferson is busy writing at his desk.
ACT II.-The same. Seven years have passed and the office now bears a more prosperous appearance. The speaking-tubo has been replaced by a telephone. Joseph Forshaw , now a salesman, enters.
ACT III.-The drawing-room at Jeffersons' house, handsomely furnished in a manner combining comfort with taste. It is shortly after 6.0 p.m., the same 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.
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.
