Arthur Baldwin article


A most human contribution - without tears

Unknown source 31 October 1962

If anything can save the threadbare formula of This Is Your Life it will be such cheerful performances as that of the Kineton brothers Baldwin, 86-year-old Arthur - whose evening it was - and 91-year-old George.

This was one of the most human contributions to the old series for a long time, and for once there was no lumps in the throat to swallow.

Memories of life in rural Warwickshire 70 years ago were recalled in last night's "This Is Your Life" by 86-year-old Mr Arthur Baldwin, of Kineton. One of the first cars he drove was brought from a museum - and he showed the controls to his brother, Mr George Baldwin (aged 91) and Eamonn Andrews
