HATWOOD GILLIAN REYNOLDS writes:
' The idea came from a listener.
Those wartime Sunday-night talks by J. B. Priestley , what would they sound like now? Mr Priestley seemed surprised. Cards for his 86th birthday covered the top of the grand piano. He sat on the sofa and thought back 40 years. It had been dicey, he said, but exciting. Alright.
Both the listener who suggested the programme and I would say, rather more.'

The spirit of the British people united against the Nazi threat is something taken for granted. That mood of defiance needed a voice. J. B.

Gillian Reynolds recalls the Postscripts, looks into the reasons for their success, and examines why they suddenly stopped. Producer JOHN SKRINS
