[number removed]Is There a Scientist In the House?

How a fridge works? If your air needs humidifying? Don't phone us if you know all about the chemicals, electricity, gas and gadgets in your home - but do ring us with any nagging doubts or queries about anything vaguely scientific around your house. with Teresa McGonagle in the Chair with Dr Magnus Pyke and Annette Lawrance. home economist

Dear Edith
A play for radio by JESSIE KESSON with Gudrun Ure as Miss Cresswell Eileen McCallum as the Warden Jan Wilson as Assistant Warden Lennox Milne as Miss Miller-Browne and Anne Scott-Jones as First Old Lady
.... I used to like this small bed-sitting room. My books, my Oesk, my photographs. All my belongings ... But now, Edith.... now the walls of my room seem to imprison me. I feel like assaulting them with cries and sounds. Breaking through them. And tearing them down. Emptiness has taken hold of me. Like a terror. And hurry seizes me. Like a panic....'
