15.00 Francis Redvers Miniature Theatre 
Puppets make grand television material, and this afternoon a new troupe makes its debut. There are two points of interest about it: the figures are exceptionally small, some being no more than seven inches in height ; and Francis Redvers manipulates them by himself, despite the fact that in one scene more than half a dozen puppets are on the stage at the same time. Jan Bussell, an expert on puppets himself (viewers have seen his Hogarth troupe several times) will be in the control room
