Those Radio Times: Afternoon Theatre - A Grotto For Miss Maynier

Radio Times Artwork for A Grotto 
for Miss Maynier by Anthony Cobb
National treasure, actress Miriam Margolyes had one of her early radio roles repeated in today’s Afternoon Theatre: From the Sixties today in 1970 (BBC Radio 4, 3.0pm).

A Grotto for Miss Maynier by FC Ball was originally broadcast by the BBC in 1967 and was a drama about a strange relationship between a solitary old lady and her garden boy.

Interesting that 60s nostalgia was creeping in as early as 1970 – but did A Grotto for Miss Maynier survive beyond 1970?

Unfortunately this play, like so many others is now regarded as lost according to www.suttonelms.org.uk  - maybe someone out there recorded it or has a copy? If so, please get in touch!
