Miriam Margolyes in The Dumpling (Boule de Suif) by GUY BE MAUPASSANT translated by H. N. P. SLOMAN adapted by ELIZABETH MORGAN
A handful of privileged citizens share a coach in their flight from occupied Rouen during the Franco-Prussian war. Among them is a pretty, plump young woman whose profession scandalises her aristocratic and self-centred fellow travellers - though they need her bargaining powers.
The first radio dramatisation of one of Maupassant's most famous stories.

A portrait of Rutland Boughton, the English composer, born 100 years ago on 23 January. Most people will recognise the Faery Song from The Immortal Hour when they hear it but not all will know who wrote it and few will recognise much else that he wrote. Yet in his day Boughton was as famous as Elgar.
Narrated by Arthur Marshall with Harry Webster as Bernard Shaw Other parts:
