A portrait of St Boniface of Crediton, Apostle to Germany (680-754)
'A man of piety and energy about whom a surprising amount is known, mostly because as a missionary administrator, he wrote many letters and many of these letters have survived. The portrait was illumined, as in a medieval manuscript, by a melodious production and by the comment of Dame Felicitas Corrigan. Appropriate that St Boniface, who in his lifetime was venerated by many nuns, should be appraised by this wise and beautifully spoken religious.' (THE GUARDIAN) with contributions by Professor E. W. F. Tomlin, CBE, and Peter Cousins Narrator NEIL STACY Musical research and direction by CHRISTOPHER WALKER with members of SS Peter and Paul Cath edral Choir, Clifton

H.G. Wells and the BBC
Script by Barry Carman
'The future of broadcasting is like the future of crossword puzzles and Oxford trousers, a very trivial future indeed.' (H.G. Wells writing in 1927)
In its early years, the BBC persuaded many of the most famous men and women of the time to speak at the microphone. H.G. Wells was the conspicuous exception. For the BBC and its programmes, he had nothing but contempt, but in 1929, his attitude changed and for the next ten years, he was a regular and stimulating broadcaster. with Cyril Shaps as H.G. Wells
