Chelsea has attracted artists and writers since the far-off days when Sir Thomas More shadowed his Utopia in a Chelsea garden, and Holbein gave a further immortality to that nobleman's most loving and pleasant family.
The Chelsea authors of this programme have attempted to reveal the fascination of this village background chosen by so many of England's famous men.

Albert Sammons (violin)
William Murdoch (pianoforte) For two great soloists to play together with perfect ensemble is not such a frequent occurrence as one would expect. The more individual the artist, the less he is capable of giving way to a partner. With Albert Sammons and William Murdoch, however, we have two first-rate soloists who are at the same time born chamber music players. They have played together for many years and are in sympathetic accord with each other's style and outlook to a marked degree.
A dramatic account of the history of highway robbery in England
Written and compiled by Leonard Cottrell , produced by John Cheatle
Highwaymen rival pirates in the claim to be considered the world's most romantic ruffians. (Or did until both were outdistanced by the gangsters of the not-so-very-brave New World.) The romantic trappings-black half-mask, huge pistol, and three-cornered hat (your typical highwayman is an eighteenth-century man)-would alone make the highwaymen the most picturesque of thieves even if we had no stories of Turpin's ride to York and Duval's coranto with his beautiful victim. And, as Leonard E. Cottrell points out in his introductory article on page 12, the highwayman could at least claim as an excuse ' the harsh social conditions that helped to produce him '.
This evening's programme will recall not only the romantic side of the highway industry (with such distinguished figures as Falstaff and Prince Hal, and the men who were privileged to rob Ben Jonson and Horace Walpole ) but the very real inconvenience it caused the mere decent, honest citizen.
