'Skeleton' (Originally broadcast on Friday 12th January 1996)
Harris, a hypochondriac, fears that his skeleton is a whole different being trying to take over his body. His doctor doesn't believe him so he looks for someone who does. He visits M. Munigan - a Bone Specialist who he found in the paper - who tells him that there is a delicate co-ordination between soul, flesh and skeleton. Unfortunately, Harris has an imbalance and needs his skeleton to be treated - with dire results.
Dramatised by Catherine Czerkawska from Ray Bradbury's short story, first published in 1945.
With Ray Bradbury [prologue and epilogue], Bob Docherty [Dr. Burley], Stuart McQuarrie [Harris], Paul Morrow [The Fat Man in the Bar], Wendy Seager [Clarisse], and Liam Brennan [M. Munigan].
The other parts were played by members of the cast.
