Singing Together is a BBC schools radio series from the 1930s, 1940s, 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s and 2000s, covering music for primary and secondary school pupils.
- Some details of the series' origins as Community Singing at the outbreak of World World 2 can be found on the autumn 1939 schedule page
This clip from the Watch unit Within Living Memory, first broadcast in spring 1999, recreates school life around the start of the 1970s. Fast forward to 01:30 to see a classroom at 11am on a Monday morning preparing to listen to Singing Together. It includes a real clip of William Appleby introducing the broadcast from 18th September 1967. I believe this is one of only 3 recordings of Singing Together that the BBC have officially kept from the series' first 40 years on air.
