As is well known The BBC have an enormous archive of television & Radio programmes most of which haven't been seen or heard since broadcast - fortunately now they are being made available via the BBC 1 Player

Here is one i watched to - day with my Lunch hosts - we don't usually watch such things after Lunch but they thought it well worth me watching so they unfolded the doors on their TV Cabinet to reveal a Television which could play the BBC i player (They , like myself hate the vulgar lines of the television clashing with the Chippendale don't yer know) the programme was - "In Town Tonight" from 1955 featuring Tito Gobbi which i thought might be some sort of Primitive interview programme - far from the utter rubbish shown to - day this was intelligent stuff with Tito Gobbi in very fine Mozartian Voice, a lady interviewer interviewing correctly with intelligent questions and who actually appeared to be listening to the answers !

Alastair Sim was there too in a "guest Appearance" as a "Bagpipe instructor from Scotland" who had Complained to the BBC !

It's really good stuff which i know most CLPGS members will have seen when broadcast but for the rest of us is very entertaining

Corruption in the CLPGS :
The Seven Social Sins are:
Wealth without work. Pleasure without conscience. Knowledge without character .Commerce without morality. Science without humanity. Worship without sacrifice. Politics without principle.

Money. Greed. Naivety. Falsehoods. Exploitation. Welcome to the wonderful world of gramophones!
