Milling is not the only thing they have to think about at the Mill o'
Dryne, which Dan Campbell , the Banchory playwright, has chosen as the scene of this holiday programme. In the course of an evening enlivened by story and music, the miller and his wife have a slight misunderstanding and two young people manage to get engaged. For the benefit of listeners who do not know the meaning of ' spree ', Alan Melville , the producer, explains that it is something in the nature of a , splore '.

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.
