GUEST,Jack Warshaw Natural history of folk (BBC radio) Attenborough (69* d) RE: Natural history of folk (BBC radio) Attenborough 06 Apr 15


Huge thanks CJB for the Off Limits 2 comment and the work you put in to improving the audio. The programme was produced by Charles Parker at Ewan and Peggy's house in Beckenham, Kent. The writing was mostly done collectively by those participating. Actuality was recorded or assembled by Charles and myself- Charles taught me how. Two tape recorders were set up. Charles used one as the singers and musicians used their instruments, with actuality segments coming in on cue and vice versa while the second machine recorded the section live. Charles then took the tapes away to link, cross fade, and work his magic to produce the final programme. Participants were: Charles, Peggy, Me, Brian Pearson, Buff Rosenthal and Steve Mooring. They were intended for clandestine transmission in Vietnam. We knew the N Vietnam Charge d'Affaires Nguyen Van Sao. The search for how artists passionately opposed to the war could make a difference and the N Vietnam connection made it happen. Of the 4 Off Limits made, I think this was the most successful.

Several years later, on the eve of Saigon's liberation, Combine, the group formed by break-away Critics Group members, wrote and presented "The Vietnam Victory Show" using the techniques of interwoven historical fact, commentary and song to tell the story of the liberation struggle from 1945 to April 1975.
