Three short stories dramatised for radio by PETER MELLORS
1: The Hearty Optimist with Jonathan Cecil as Charles Lane
Johnson and Chippet find themselves short of money, so they set up a business to remove, 'without cruelty and for a fee', people who are boring or tiresome. Their first job is to deal with Charles Lane , an insufferable optimist who is persistently cheerful and refuses to be upset by anything. His wife and children find him rather unbearable!
