A Frivolous Affair by Maurice Horspool
The scene is laid in Little Dutford in Yorkshire-and later in the County Court
Produced by Edward Wilkinson
Here is something with a real Christmas flavour, a ghost story, but one intended to make the sides shake rather than the flesh creep. In such a play surprise is everything, so the main outline may only be hinted at. A Canadian returns home to claim his ancestral mansion. He tries to sell it, but no one will have it for love or money. The reason is a very real and very noisy ghost. Listeners will hear how the ghost is laid and how a county court gets the surprise of its life.

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.
