1: The Haunted Majorby ROBERT MARSHALL adapted for radio and introduced by MORAY MCLAREN

Major the Hon John Wentworth Gore comes to St Andrews to play golf against the Scottish champion. But the ghost of Cardinal Beaton intervenes.

Produced by GORDON EMSLIE

This series deals with the wounds we inflict on each other, modulating from the straightforward farce of this morning's play through the splenetic comedy of tomorrow's All for a Bit of Cod to quite different areas of sensibility in Wares on Wednesday and Sons of England on Friday. Each play is produced-and set - in a different part of Britain, and each brings its own local touch of humour or tragedy to the battle.
