While he was teaching in a primary school in Sussex, Dad pioneered ways to use the tape recorder in the classroom. He wrote the seminal book on that subject, after winning first the British and then the World Amateur Recording Championships with two really special productions in 1958 and 1959 with his class of primary school children: Life in a Medieval Town and Journey so long. This second one is all about a class setting off on a train journey to an imaginary country in the Alps call Beldavia and having adventures there. I had thought for decades that it would be a good to make this 16 minute long piece available at his funeral. I am so glad that on the day before the funeral Colin and I turned the original tape recording into a CD. It is delightful!
