starring Max Bygraves
with Dennis Price, Michael Medwin, Florence Desmond

Max Bygraves brings a polished professional approach to this story of the rise of an ex-serviceman, from the variety stage to the pinnacle of the entertainment world - a story with more than a passing reference to Max's own career. In the midst of success, however, Charley Moon begins to yearn for a simpler, more sincere existence.

by Noel Coward
Starring Jeanette MacDonald, Nelson Eddy
with George Sanders, Ian Hunter

A Victorian belle elopes from her wealthy London home to poverty with her singing teacher in Vienna. Noel Coward's delicate romance provides a fine vehicle for Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy, who were at the peak of their popularity when MGM made this version in 1940. If Hollywood sometimes gets the upper hand with the story, the singing of 'I'll See You Again,' 'If Love Were All,' 'Tokay' and many others is a continuous delight.

'I used to write plays when I was about eleven. I suppose it was an absolute gift, because I left school when I was nine, I went on the stage when I was 10, and so I didn't have any formal education, which left me free to educate myself.'
'I think writing is an art and a craft and if you can combine the two you make a living out of it'
Noel Coward talks to Patrick Garland about his career as a playwright.
Introduced by Ronald Bryden with excerpts from The Vortex, Hay Fever, Blithe Spirit, This Happy Breed, and Star
