Script by Geoffrey Bond
Repeated Wed., 11.15 a.m.
On the opening day of the Festival Mrs. Elliot had a migraine and Mrs. Cornish developed laryngitis so things started badly. The Italian biochemist arrived at the Dales, and the American, Leroy Parrimer. got on very well with the Baxters. Janet was unhappy because Carl Plevna didn'take her to the Choral Concert after all. The mysterious Josh Keeble arrived in Exton Park.
