Ada Harris You've seen things before Pretty things before [voice of Daniel Evans] It's an adaptation of a novella by Paul Gallico, the book is by Rachel Wagstaff and the music is by Richard Taylor [singing] This is something not quite real This is [voice of Richard Taylor] This is the story of Mrs Ada Harris, lives in Battersea in London, just after the Second World War [singing] This seems made to make you feel Ada [voice of Richard Taylor] She's a cleaner she doesn't want for anything she's perfectly content with her life until one day, shes cleaning for a very wealthy lady in Belgravia she opens the door and see's a thing that changes her life.
