An exploration of some of the key moments in the career of Ninette de Valois, including her first professional performance at the age of 14 and a half, her work with Diaghilev's Ballet Russes, and her meeting in 1926 with Lilian Baylis, an association that led to the foundation of the Vic-Wells Ballet and the Sadler's Wells Ballet, which became the Royal Ballet in 1956.

   Sugar Plum Fairy: Thank you so much for this (and David, thanks for the details). On Thursday I shall be far, far away (further even than Arbroath) but will make arrangements to have it recorded.
