Photographs from the 1963 Mystery Plays production. There are not many from this year, although a donation of a scrapbook compiiled by Arthur and Rosemary Pickering has recently helped. A newly-found image of Alan Dobie as Jesus in his ministry is welcome (below left). At the foot of the page is one of Ian McShane as Satan - extracted from a larger scene.
