Scope and Content

With Lord (Bernard) Miles (1907-1991), actor, director and writer. Topics covered include: his comments on a production of RD's [The Cure for Love] in 1945, including detailed comments on the scenery and the actors' performances, and a sketch showing a suggested alteration to the pub scene; and the possibility of RD taking part in a series of BBC programmes called 'This Book is News', consisting of readings from the Bible in unfamiliar versions, including English dialect (he would like RD to do one reading in straight English and another in Lancashire dialect).
