By William Makespeace Thackeray, adapted for radio by Ellen Dryden.
Unable to find any Christmas entertainment for the children in his charge, Thackeray invents his own fireside pantomime to keep them amused: a story of two kingdoms, two kings and two princesses, lions, magic, battles, a rose and a ring.
With Prunella Scales and Maureen Lipman.
Director Don Taylor.
