3—' The Canterbury Pilgrims '
By Alec MacDonald
(by permission of Sydney Carroll)
Produced by Geoffrey Dearmer
This afternoon the Rector and his son Michael will go for a tramp into the country and, which is much more important, into the past. They take the Pilgrims' Way, the way that Chaucer's pilgrims took in 1380, so it is fitting that they should meet Chaucer himself. He takes them into Canterbury on horseback, and on the road describes the martyrdom of Becket. Inside the Cathedral a monk shows the party the tomb and the shrine as it then appeared.
The play is written by Alec MacDonald , author of the series ' Christian England '. Felix Aylmer will play Chaucer ; Marcus Barron and Henry Hepworth will play their usual parts as the Rector and Michael ; and Ian Dawson , who appears regularly in this series, will be the monk who shows the party round the Cathedral.
