'The Land of the White Rose ', by Joan Littlewood , produced by Nan Macdonald
Wilfred takes you to his own county of Yorkshire and brings to life again old forgotten stories of the Wars of the Roses. He takes you to the fair city of York. in the days of Queen Elizabeth, and up on to the moors of the West Riding to. show you a glimpse of the Bronte family. He visits Sheffield and chats with a steel worker, Herbert Perkington , and listens to Yorkshire songs sung by Dale Smith and the Fletcher Singers. The rest of the story of this county of broad acres, too vast tp cover in one afternoon, will be told in another programme a month from today.
