1970 was a popular year for Felling Male Voice Choir to be featured on broadcast media outlets!
BBC Newcastle produced a special “Look North” programme on the choir which focussed on Felling Park. The Park’s Department produced a floral display to commemorate the choir’s Golden Jubilee.
Radio Durham made two broadcasts featuring the choir. The choir also recorded items for the BBC’s competition “Let the People Sing” at Gateshead Town Hall and they went on to represent the Northern Region in the finals.
The “Owen Brannigan Show” was recorded at City Road, Newcastle and went out on Tyne Tees TV. The choir backed him on the Blaydon Races and sang a group of North Country Songs. Not a bad little coverage!
