in 'THE CRIMES OF
BURKE AND HARE', the Body-snatchers of Edinburgh
The action passes in Edinburgh in the year 1829 at :
Swanson's Drinking House-A Street in Westport—Burke's House at Gibs Close-Dr. Knox's House at Surgeons Hall-Hare's House at Tanners Close -a Street in Westport-and Hare's House.
Produced by LAURENCE GILLIAM
ORCHESTRA conducted by MARK H. LUBBOCK
See the short article on page 6.
' Burke and Hare' will be repeated in the National programme tomorrow at 8.40.
The drama of Burke and Hare, which was originally to have been broadcast in January, is based on the exploits of the famous surgeon, Dr. Knox of Edinburgh who, needing corpses for his anatomical research, took care not to inquire too closely where they came from.
The play is concerned with the macabre characters of two Irish labourers, William Burke and William Hare, who found an easy way of making money in supplying Dr. Knox at ten guineas a time-daft Jamie Wilson being the instrument of justice.
This breath-taking story, soaked in the atmosphere of the Edinburgh underworld of a hundred years ago, is just the right medium for the terrifying melodramatic intensity of Tod Slaughter and his accomplices.
