translated from the Spanish by Stephen Kessler, and dramatised by Gregory Evans.
Greece, sometime in the recent part of its turbulent modern history: peasant women without men defy all attempts by the local military authority to stop them making conflicting claims over bodies that turn up in the river.
Although set in Greece, to escape Chilean censorship, the play is a thinly-disguised portrayal of the suffering of millions of peasants in Latin America today.

The Girl in His Past by GEORGES SLMENON translated by LOUISE VARESE abridged in seven episodes by NEVILLE TELLER
Read by Gavin Campbell (1) On a wet and cold night near
Paris, a motorist draws up at a country bar and asks for a telephone. He rings the local police station to confess to a brutal murder committed just hours earlier. But what of the motive? A crime of passion - or something deeper, more elemental, rooted in the murderer's past?
Producer MAURICE LEITCH
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.
