View in Radio Times

" There was a found of revelry by night."
A Radio Picture of the Period.
The drama of Waterloo is pictured as Lord Byron felt it - not the battle itself, but the events at Brussels which preceded it: the lighthearted revels, with the note of anxiety sounding through them all, and the bustle, noise, music and hurry of war. Then the counting of the cost, and the dirge for the fallen.
Then the Comedy, the engaging insincerities of Becky Sharp. To end, the faree-for Bill Adams and not Sir Arthur was the Conqueror.
Adapted and arranged from the works of LORD BYRON and WILLIAM MAKEPEACE THACKERAY by L. B. RAMSDEN and A R. B. MUNRO. Incidental Music arranged by Dr. HERBERT THOMPSON.
Drums and Bugles of the 7th BATT. WEST YORKSHIRE REGIMENT.
(By kind permission of the Commanding Officer, Col. G. E. ST. CLAIR STOCKWELL. )
THE STATION TRIO :
Conducted by PERCY FROSTICK.
THE ART THEATRE PLAYERS.
Note. - Use is made of Olive Conway's dramatisation of scenes from "Vanity Fair."
