Singing Together: The radio show that got schoolchildren singing -
For nearly 60 years the long-running BBC Schools radio programme Singing Together got generations of children singing in classrooms across the country. What made it so special and why does it still have a place in people's hearts, asks the BBC's Ruth Evans.

Remember and enjoyed these singalongs in our small village school in the 1950's, mono sound from a plywood boxed speaker placed on the teachers desk. Same speaker taken outside for 'music and movement' programme on the asphalt playground in clement weather.
