Was £12.99
Sit back and enjoy the great days of yesteryear as this program guides us through the mystical era of the Music Hall. Presented by Lionel Blair (A Hard Day's Night) we trace the origins of the Music Hall right back to the days of the riotous Bartholomew Fayres of the Middle Ages through to the performers of the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens of the 19th Century. Our journey begins with recordings from the foremost artists of the day the legendary Marie Lloyd and Dan Leno and runs through to the heyday of live performances from amongst others Arthur Askey George Fornby and 'Our Gracie' Gracie Fields. Interspersed are famous recordings and footage from seminal artists including 'Champagne Charlie' from George Laybourne 'Two Lovely Black Eyes' from Charles Coburn and footage of performances by Gus Elen and Lily Morris. The program gathers together incredible archive footage from the era much of it never before seen and intersperses the footage with old recordings memorabilia and in depth discussions from the world's foremost Music Hall authority Peter Gammond. These were times the likes of which we will never see again and performances by artists that would grace the stage in any age.
