This week: The Troupers
Every summer the variety artists go to the seaside-to make the holiday-makers laugh. The big names go to Blackpool and Great Yarmouth, the slightly smaller names go to Bournemouth. Scarborough or Llandudno. You may never have heard the names of the players in 'Startime' at Ilfracombe. They have never topped a Palladium bill-perhaps they never will. But they still have their professional standards and their high hopes. One day the big break is bound to come. Meantime keep the customers laughing and keep the wolf from the door.
Report by Trevor Philpott.
