Dear Desmond [crossed out], DD [pencilled in]

         'THE LIVING WORLD'- Signature tune.

     I enclose a tape of some sample noises for Delia
and hope they ill be useful.

     The quality of the copying I am afraid is indifferent
owing to the fact that I was busy editing a transmission
tape, and left this for someone else to do!  However,
I think even so it will be O.K. as a sample guide.

     I much enjoyed meeting you and Delia the other
day, and look forward to hearing the first results of
her efforts on 12th July, at 2.30 p.m.

     An important note from John Sparks - please not <U>too</U>
ephemeral - he wants a 'neway' impact.  This I dispute
slightly but see his point.  This is a new series with
intended impact, so let's have a strong opening phrases
or something to make people sit up and listen?

                     Sincerely

                     Robina Gyle-Thompson [penned signature]
