LORD HAILSHAM OF ST MARYLEBONE and ERIC HF.FFER. mp, from the side of the State: and THE BISHOP OP LONDON and VALERIE PITT , from the side of the Church.

A novel without a hero by WILLIAM MAKEPEACE THACKERAY adapted for radio in ten parts by MICHAEL KITTERMASTER
1: Introducing the Puppet Show
In which the Manager of the Performance, the Puppet Master, introduces to us his orphaned heroine Becky Sharp and the dear little Amelia. We are promised scenes of all sorts: some dreadful combats, some grand and lofty horse-riding, some scenes of high life, and low; some love-making and some light comic business - the whole accompanied by appropriate effects. We are also introduced to some handsome young officers and the fat Collector of Bogley Wollah. (For cast see Tues: 3.5)
