Radio 2 presents the world premiere of the first musical collaboration between Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice.
The Likes of Us

Coinciding with the centenary of his death, The Likes Of Us is the story of the life of Dr Thomas Barnardo, a man who was evangelical, entrepreneurial and philanthropic, and whose crusade to rescue children living on the streets became world renowned.

Although the musical was written in 1965 it has never been performed to the public until now. In a concert recorded at the Mermaid Theatre in London, the BBC Concert Orchestra is joined by a star studded cast, headed by Stephen Fry as the narrator under the direction of Simon Lee. Introduced by Paul Gambaccini.

A new specially recorded album of this production is now available to buy in our online shop.
