Jack by DAVID MARSNALL Narrated by Joan Bakewell
A ' cautionary tale ' for married grown-ups, in which ' suburban and un-dynamic .lack ' goes metaphorically over the hill, to fetch a pail of water, and spills it in various directions. The vicar's rcmonstrations, however, prove as efficient a restorative as the vinegar and brown paper of the nursery rhyme, and Jack and Jill are able to resolve their geographical differences and live happily ever after.

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.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
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.
