An error in the accounts
This is the fifth of the series of true stories of misadventures which may be lying in wait for you. An audit clerk discovered a discrepancy in the accounts. What should he have done ? When the tale has been told, an accountant will make a comment on the situation.
A Hyperbolical Anachronism by Maurice A. R. Horspool
Time, 54 B.C. (or thereabouts)
Place, Tyneside (or thereabouts)
Produced by Cecil McGivern
Maurice Horspool , who has written this comic-history extravaganza of Ancient Britain, will be remembered as the author of Guineas for the Ghost. Originally, the play was written for the stage, hut the radio adaptation retains all the entertainment bound up in the plot-the tale of a brontosaurus, intent upon making a meal of women and children. Listeners will learn how the legionaries and the Britons tried to rid themselves of the menace by building a wall.

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.
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.
