When he produced this play for the Third Programme in 1956. Donald McWhinnie described it as ' ... a rich and salty comic invention dealing with the adventures of an eccentric army lieutenant and his small and excessively awkward squad isolated in the Welsh mountains on a mission of questionable value..... " Experimental " is a much misused word, but both in conception and in form Mathry Beacon is one of the most interesting and individual experiments I have come across for some time.'
