From: Nigel Parsons

Making Music was a BBC Schools broadcast series on television.
As Television is a more visual medium than Radio it appears that the booklets for these programmes are less common than those for 'Singing Together' or 'Time and Tune'.
Some further information can be found Here but it is currently quite scant.
I will list the contents of those pamphlets which I hold.
Several of the booklets were re-used, or re-printed for different years.
