Rumpole and the New Year's Resolutions

Rumpole shares some of his favourite yuletide stories and a trip to the pantomine proves to be something of an eye-opener.

Rumpole shares some of his favourite yuletide poetry, carols, and pantomime stories as he recounts seasonal legal cases which reveal, as always, the true nature of men, women, children - and She Who Must Be Obeyed!
