Subject: Permission to replay BBC programme material outside the BBC

To:      A.H.C.P. Ops (S)

     I am organising a non-profit-making concert of electronic
     music, to be given before an invited audience at a private
     theatre at Bagnor near Newbury on 10th September.

     I am seeking the BBC's permission to play as part of the
     concert a section of one of the four 'inventions for radio'
     originally broadcast on the Third Programme.  These pro-
     grammes consist of 'vox pop' speech recorded from life
     and edited by Barry Bermange, with a background of electronic
     music by myself.  No actors or musicians were involved.

     I believe there is precedent in that the second of the
     inventions, 'Amor Dei' has been replayed in a church, but
     I'm afraid I haven't any further details about this.

     I'd be very grateful indeed if you would advise me about this.
