Thread Name: History - BBC's 'Singing Together'
Subject: RE: History - BBC's 'Singing Together'
Hello, I am working on a radio documentary about 'Singing Together', and I'm looking for interesting stories about the programme- perhaps you worked it, or were really influenced by it? I am hoping to find people who listened during the war, because it started in 1939 and the BBC hoped it would comfort children - particularly evacuees in unfamiliar schools.
I'm also looking at a song from 1974 called 'Hunting the Hare' which caused a big row at the time- letters from MPs, complaints from Head teachers and so on. Some classes loved the song and others refused to sing it. Can anyone remember this?
