A Dramatic Feature by G. P. AMBROSE and T. ROWLAND HUGHES
On the night of Sunday, November 3, 1839, a body of over two thousand men from the mining valleys of Monmouth-shire marched upon the town of Newport to demonstrate on behalf of several Chartist leaders who had been imprisoned in Monmouth gaol. This programme attempts to dramatise the attack on the Westgate Inn , the arrest of the Chartist Leader, John Frost , and the famous trial where he, amongst others, was sentenced to death for High Treason.
The characters will be played by members of the NEWPORT PLAYGOERS SOCIETY and the programme produced by T. ROWLAND HUGHES

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
