    Item notes : This is a recording of the magazine programme 'Africa Abroad'. This edition features a discussion about African-American theatre in London by Joan Hooley. Four actors and singers took part in a London pantomime production namely: Cleo Laine, Cy Grant, George Browne [?] and Elizabeth Welch. George Browne was the musical director of 'Do something Adie Mann' [?]; he speaks about his experience in this theatre production. Laine speaks about her part in an operatic production of Brecht's play 'The Seven Deadly Sins'. Laine and Browne [?] talk about their parts in the 1962 Negro production of the Cinderella story. Following this is a jazz review of the music of Gerald Wilson by Amino Abdhullahi [?]. Next there is an introduction to the book 'Seven African Writers' edited by Gerald Moore. Two reviews of the book are announced but are not included in the programme.
