Description

This is a BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of the classic American tale starring Gayle Hunnicutt. When Pollyanna’s father dies, she is sent to live with her only surviving relative, the rich but stern Aunt Polly. Pollyanna’s joy soon turns to disappointment when her spinster aunt gives her a cold greeting and tells her she is to stay in the attic. It’s not the welcome Pollyanna expected, but she soon regains her spirits, playing the ‘glad game’ her father taught her. Nancy the maid is charmed by Pollyanna and soon the girl’s infectious optimism wins the hearts of everyone in town from the reclusive Mr Pendleton to the shy Dr Chilton. Everyone, that is, except Aunt Polly, who refuses to succumb to her young niece’s charm. It is not until a tragic accident occurs, which leaves even Pollyanna struggling to find a way to feel glad, that her maiden aunt finally unwraps her heart from years of bitterness. This BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation retains the spirit of childlike innocence and optimism that has made Pollyanna a favourite amongst generations of children and adults.
