A comedy by Dennis Driscoll.
Second performance: Thursday at 9.45 p.m.
In her tiny home in the industrial town of Cluney Maggie Lomax suddenly finds that her family life is full of complications. A young American becomes an unexpected guest and devotes much attention to her daughter. Her son David comes home with a Bachelor of Science degree only to announce that he does not want to get the sort of 'white-collar' job Maggie had always planned for him. And to complicate things further David is pursued by a pretty girl from London.
In this riotous North-Country farce it is Maggie's husband, Walter, who takes most of the kicks. But although he seems more interested in rearing chickens and in exchanging secrets with his neighbour Amos Entwistle, perhaps he knows enough to be able to straighten out the tangles of his household, and to set Maggie's mind at rest.

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.
