BBC News Radio 4 Salutes George Arliss

On the morning of February 28, 2018,London commuters enjoyed a rare treat as they listened to the BBC News Radio 4 broadcasting a wonderful tribute to George Arliss. The occasion was the Sunday, March 4 telecast of the 90th Academy Awards ceremony in Los Angeles where Gary Oldham is widely viewed as the likely winner of the Best Actor Award for playing Winston Churchill in DARKEST HOUR.

Listen to the four-minute BBC appreciation with comments by a number of observers including your blogmeister:
