The One Show

In 2009 the Society featured on BBC One's The One Show.

Gyles Brandreth and his crew visited Paignton to find out why a small seaside town in Devon was chosen as the location for the world premiere of The Pirates of Penzance.

This short film features an interview with Life Member and then-Chairman Nigel Hickman, followed by a performance on the prom with Mr Brandreth himself!
