Delia created "various music and speech inserts" for a BBC radio drama "The Flame" produced by Bennett Maxwell.[1]

THE FLAME
by Angela Rodaway
Cast in order of speaking: and children from the King Alfred School, Golders Green
Music specially composed by ANGELA RODAWAY played by PATRICK BENHAM (guitar)
Special sound by the BBC RADIOPHONIC WORKSHOP
Produced by MICHAEL BAKEWELL and BENNETT MAXWELL

This is Angela Rodaway's second radio play. Her first, The Death of the Jellybaby, was broadcast last year. The Flame is centred on the conflict between two women: one intelligent, brilliant, apparently hard. driven by a terrible malice: the other apparently safe in her position with husband and child, yet tormented by the premature death of a child. The action is concerned with the relationship between the two, and the power of evil generated in each by the other. The Flame is composed in free time sequence of interlocking November the Fifths, which emphasises the concept of fire as an embodiment of evil. as a force to be worshipped. and as the element by which witchcraft was destroyed.[2]
