A play by Naomi Mitchison and L. E. Gielgud
Adapted for broadcasting and produced by Martyn C. Webster
This play deals with the Neronian persecution of the early Christians, Â—the time of the Fire of Rome, and of the excesses of Nero and his henchman Tigellinus. The story tells of Beric, the son of Caractacus the British king, who is held half-captive, half-guest in the house of a Roman named Crispus, and of his conversion to the Christian faith. His sufferings begin when the Christians are made scapegoats for the burning of Rome, for as Crispus, an honest man of the old school, remarks: "If the authorities round up a few hundred Christians, put them through a solemn trial and find them guilty, all the curses will go to them, and Nero will only have to appear on his balcony to have all Rome lining up below and shouting hail, hail, hail!" An ironical touch here is that Gallio, who as related in Acts "cared for none of these things," finds himself in prison in company with the same Paul whom he once had beaten in Achaia.

Appeal on behalf of the Forces Help Society and Lord Roberts Workshops, by John Mills
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
For more than fifty-four years the Forces Help Society and Lord Roberts Workshops have worked unceasingly for the benefit of all serving and ex-Service men and women, and more than three million have been helped. In the Lord Roberts Workshops the men of three wars, with an average disablement of over sixty per cent, have been trained and employed to produce furniture of all kinds, bedding, basket-ware, and brushes.
In homes in Surrey specially equipped for spinal cases the more severely disabled are being trained in clock assembly and repair and in invisible mending - remunerative crafts the men can later follow from the shelter of their own homes. Other centres are maintained for the aged and for the disabled and convalescent.
The Society is a voluntary organisation, and needs funds to continue its vital work.

Characters in order of speaking:
Produced by Norman Wright
Phineas had passed a rather dull winter in Ireland with his own family ÃƒÂ¢?? without on this occasion permitting himself anything but the mildest flirtation with his old flame, poor little Mary Flood Jones. But back in London for the new Parliamentary session he had immediately found himself plunged into a whirl of social and political activities.
Lady Laura's marriage to Mr. Kennedy had already taken place, but Phineas has now begun to forget his sorrow at losing her and is finding himself increasingly attracted by her lively friend.- Miss Violet Effingham. Miss Effingham, however, has long been loved by Lady Laura's scapegrace brother, Lord Chiltern. As for Lady Laura, she is finding Mr. Kennedy narrow-minded and exacting, and is already beginning to regret her marriage to him.
