Written by James Fisher and edited by Stephen Potter Salcey is a typical example of an ancient English forest in evolution. Rabbits are hunted now instead of deer. The trees are still Cropped, although the purposes for which they are used are sometimes different. But it is still a reservoir of animals and plants which we preserve to study and study to preserve

A panorama of Aristophanic comedy written and produced by Louis MacNeice
[Starring] Dylan Thomas as Aristophanes
with Esme Percy and John Chandos as his leading actors
Special music by Antony Hopkins

This programme pays homage to a master of mockery and fantasy: illustrating his genius with scenes from most of his extant plays, including The Wasps, The Clouds, the Peace, The Birds, and the Lysistrata. From these emerge some striking parallels to our modern world. Aristophanes wrote most of his comedies during a bitter war and remained throughout an enemy of cant, stupidity, and selfish imperialism
