Last Edited: 19-Dec-2012 A Global British Comedy Collaborative document. Edited by John Lucas
Broadcast source is BBC Radio Four unless otherwise indicated. Recording quality is considered good unless otherwise indicated.

A short tribute to Joyce Grenfell derived from Maureen Lipman's one woman show. There are two versions:
  1. R3 broadcast 5x15-20 nominal minute episodes
  2. R4 broadcast 4x30 nominal minute episodes
Both are believed to be different edits from the same original recording. The songs were composed by Richard Addinsell.
