Annotations made by David Jones in 1964 to a Typescript draft of the introduction to the broadcast script of 'In Parenthesis', written and produced by Douglas Cleverdon, transmitted on 19 November 1946 by the BBC Third Programme. The corrections are in pencil, and the documents are in a particularly bad state of wear. 'In Parenthesis' was adapted for the wireless (radio) by Douglas Cleverdon and was to be broadcast on Armistice Day 1939, but all schedules were cancelled after the outbreak of the Second World War. A shortened version was rehearsed in 1942 but this too was cancelled. In this 1946 broadcast the introduction was written and was pre-recorded by David Jones, and the cast included actors like Richard Burton and Dylan Thomas. The first radio performance of 'In Parenthesis' made a profound effect on many of those listening.
