Scope and Content

RD as Thomas Becket giving the Archbishop's Sermon from T.S. Eliot's Murder in the Cathedral. He acted this part at the Old Vic in March 1953 and it was subsequently released as a record by Columbia. This extract, however, is identified on the box as a BBC tape made on the above date, possibly taken from the Columbia recording, and presumably intended for BBC broadcast.

Duration: 10 minutes.


Transferred to cassette no. 56.
