Scripts for radio and television

Scope and Content

This sub-class reflects RD's career in broadcasting, and contains scripts of talks, poetry readings, radio plays, interviews, and the Christmas Day round-the-world broadcasts for which RD provided the narration. One television script is also included (at /34), for which RD provided the commentary. The majority of these scripts relate to BBC radio broadcasts, and broadcast information is given where included on the script itself. /24, however, is the script for a radio play of John Galsworthy's Justice, which RD travelled to New York to make in 1949.


arrangement is chronological as far as this can be determined. All the scripts are typescript unless stated. File FRD1/8/1 also contains a small number of radio scripts and there is one further radio script in FRD1/8/12.
