Default Re: BBC i-player section 'From the Archive'

Just a heads-up that a complete 1955 edition of 'In Town Tonight' is available on the i-Player. A rare chance to see an example of this long running radio magazine-type programme which crossed over to television. The title sequence where London's bustling traffic is commanded to 'Halt!' is well remembered. Some wonderful examples of the deferential BBC interviewing technique that was standard at the time. Watch out for 'The Woman Wonders Why?' putting the 'feminine point of view' on motoring to Stanley Clarke, organiser of the Earls Court Motor Show. Lovely stuff!
