Seven letters from Andrew F. Wilson, relating to: Wilson's work on researching a bibliography of NCN's publications (to include unpublished works, radio broadcasts and television films); his interest in any information Doreen Cornthwaite can give him about Border Television films or written archives relating to NCN; Doreen's assistance with information about television and radio programmes concerning NCN; his interest in No star on the way back, a Nativity drama featuring ballads and carols by NCN, broadcast by Border Television on 29 December 1963; his progress in finding out more about NCN's BBC work; and the publication of NCN's Collected poems by Faber, which Wilson feels is long overdue. The letters are stored with various typescript and copy typescript lists of archive material and television broadcasts relating to NCN, which have largely been separated from any letters with which they were originally enclosed. These include: a note on No star on the way back, including cast names; lists of television documentaries, features and news items relating to NCN produced by Border TV, Granada TV, L[ondon] W[eekend] T[elevision] and the BBC; a photocopied typescript list, apparently from a Border Television archive, with programmes relating to NCN highlighted; a list of NCN-related radio items dating from 1971-1981; a list of as yet unidentified NCN-related television items; and a typescript list of radio, television and other recordings [taken from a draft of Wilson's bibliography, in which it formed section J].
