I knew they were there, but all I saw was Regina lying on her back, her face the colour of cream, and one arm flung out sideways with the dead white fingers curling upwards as if in supplication. There had been no mercy.' (Music: Corazon, played by Woody Herman )
Story: Mr Corkindale and the Dentist Bird by WILLIAM RANKIN
by ROBERT BAGE dramatised in five parts by D. G.

Set in England at the close of the 18th century, it is a probing, picaresque tale which evokes the most important issues of the day while at the same time, in a period of revolution abroad, questions the established order with a refreshing simplicity.
