Sir Ralph Richardson stars in four dramatic adaptations of classic British tales, first broadcast in the UK in 1952-3, and favorites with American radio listeners. Margaret Lockwood stars as Becky Sharp (adapted from ‘Vanity Fair’. The stories here date from 1759 right up to 1953 – in fact ‘Private Rooms’ had only just been premiered on stage when this version was recorded.
