"Scrapbook For..." was an occasional and enduringly popular programme on BBC radio for more than 40 years. First broadcast in 1932 on the Beeb's "National Programme", in post-war years on the "Home Service" and last heard about 1974 on Radio 4.
Each programme was devoted to one specific year's key events and highlights with accounts by people who were close to historical events, recordings of radio broadcasts, popular shows, singers, musicians, etc..
The programmes were devised and researched by Leslie Baily, narrated by Freddie Grisewood and produced by Vernon Harris. More about BBC Scrapbook: http://www.suttonelms.org.uk/articles31.html
