The Clayton and Waller Story
Written and narrated by John Watt

Iris Villiers , Billie Barker
Terry James, Laurie Payne
BBC Chorus

BBC Concert Orchestra
(Leader, John Sharpe )
Conductor, Charles Mackerras
The programme produced by Michael North
The name of the firm Clayton and Waller means to the public ' No, No, Nanette.' It also may mean all the other wonderful shows that followed that phenomenal success that altered the whole style of musical comedy from the more leisurely days of George Edwardes to the fast-moving shows of today. Jack Waller, after the termination of the partnership, was responsible for the long string of Bobby Howes shows at the Saville and the Hippodrome. Both are names to conjure with in the theatre.
