Six weeks ago ' Parade ' invited the under-twenties of Bolton to devise and plan a radio feature showing life in their home town as seen through their eyes. In this programme they bring together people, events, and problems of the present day, with a reminder of the past and a glimpse of the future
Presentation is by local under-twenties -narrators, interviewers, and actors having been chosen from auditions open to all.
' Parade' has provided mobile recording facilities for outside interviews and commentaries, and the use of a studio for dramatised scenes and narration, together with professional advice when required. Responsibility for the choice of material and its use within the programme has been in the hands of a committee of under-twenties chosen at the first general meeting.

The Nigel Playfair Story

(Leader, John Sharpe )
Conductor, Charles Mackerras
Programme produced by Michael North
The story of Sir Nigel Playfair is largely the story of the Lyric Theatre, Hammersmith; and the story of the Lyric is largely the legend of ' The Beggar's Opera.' In this production Sir Nigel set a keynote with the scene and dress designs of Lovat Fraser and the stylised simplicity that still makes itself felt today. He also set the fashion for eighteenth-century revivals, and from the old ballad operas ' The Duenna,' ' Love in a Village,' and 'Polly' stemmed the present-day completely English pieces ' Midsummer Madness,' ' Tantivy Towers,' and ' Derby Day,'all brought alive by the magic touch of Sir Nigel Playfair.
