Una's mother died when she was ten - since when she has been cared for by her step-father. Lalo, in the remote Irish village where she was born. A highly disturbed and emotional man, he is totally dependent on her. ' He's obsessive about you. You're still a child in his eyes. You'll have to find the courage to stand up to him, to let him see you're going to marry Michael.'

with Simon Cadell, Joanna David, Christopher Benjamin and Angela Pleasence as...
A serious comedy for radio by Frederick Bradnum
"Do you know about the crowns? Virgin crowns. Unique to this church, you know. If a person is born, baptised and dies in the parish, above the age of puberty, and is a virgin, then the next of kin ask for a virgin crown. There is a sort of calling of the banns, so that if anyone wants to object they can."
When Maggie Bell died, no one did actually object, though there were several who should have done. But Maggie herself objects quite strongly.
