Irving Berlin needs no introduction from me.

0:12:220:12:25

His music seems to tell it all.

0:12:250:12:27

In 1912, he fell madly in love with the daughter of another songwriter.

0:12:270:12:33

They married, but after their honeymoon in Cuba,

0:12:330:12:36

she fell ill and died.

0:12:360:12:39

It was this despair that brought about this glorious song -

0:12:390:12:44

When I Lost You.

0:12:440:12:47

# The roses, each one

0:12:540:12:57

# Met with the sun

# Sweetheart, when I met you

0:13:000:13:05

# The sunshine had fled

0:13:050:13:09

# The roses were dead

0:13:090:13:13

# Sweetheart, when I lost you

0:13:130:13:21

# When I lost you

0:14:070:14:15

# The birds ceased their song

0:14:170:14:20

# Right turned to wrong

0:14:200:14:24

-I had to walk it. ALL:

-Awww.

0:27:580:28:01

A journey, my friends, best described

0:28:010:28:05

as a stroll round the very perimeter of Hades itself.

0:28:050:28:08

Fingers of cold mountain mist

0:28:160:28:19

curled in treachery around my stout gaiters...

0:28:190:28:24

..as I toiled heavily across the bleak plateau

0:28:250:28:29

of the mountain range.

0:28:290:28:31

A sullen, biting wind blew the snow flurries

0:28:310:28:35

into a maddened fandango of white-flaked fury.

0:28:350:28:38

From behind...

0:28:490:28:51

an outcrop of age-pitted stones loomed an ill-painted door.

0:28:510:28:58

Crying "Sanctuary!" through cracked lips,

0:28:580:29:00

I lurched forward and banged painfully on the door.

0:29:000:29:04

The door opened to reveal

0:29:050:29:07

the most enchanting little girl that I've ever seen.

0:29:070:29:10

-ALL:

-Aww.

0:29:100:29:11

"My child," I croaked...

0:29:110:29:14

"..may I speak to your father?"

0:29:170:29:20

The winsome gamine gazed at me and said,

0:29:200:29:25

"Daddy isn't 'ere."

0:29:250:29:28

"Then, child," I explained,

0:29:280:29:30

"may I have words with your dear mother?"

0:29:300:29:33

A troubled look came across her features. Her bottom lip trembled.

0:29:340:29:38

A fleeting shadow of sadness crossed her features.

0:29:380:29:41

She said, "Mummy isn't here either."

0:29:410:29:45

-ALL:

-Awww.

0:29:450:29:47

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I too could not believe it.

0:29:470:29:49

I railed inwardly at the perfidy of parents

0:29:490:29:52

who could abandon such a delightful waif.

0:29:520:29:55

Leave this child alone in such a small, cramped, gloomy house

0:29:550:29:59

in the teeth of a ferocious storm, in this mist of desolation.

0:29:590:30:03

JEERING

0:30:030:30:05

I could contain myself no longer.

0:30:080:30:10

Sinking to my knees, I grasped the child to my snow-powdered cape.

0:30:100:30:14

I said, "Fear not, my child!

0:30:200:30:24

"Elfin creature of pure delight."

0:30:240:30:27

"Fear not, for you are no longer alone."

0:30:290:30:32

And she grabbed her rag dolly very close to her little pinafore

0:30:320:30:36

and she said, "It's not the house, it's the lavatory."

0:30:360:30:39

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the works of this tragic actor,

0:30:570:31:03

I should like to introduce myself - the name is Les Dawson.

0:31:030:31:06

It's not my real name, it's a stage name.

0:31:060:31:09

I was actually christened Friday Dawson.

0:31:090:31:12

Because when Father saw me for the first time, he turned to Mother

0:31:120:31:15

and said, "I think we'd better call it a day."

0:31:150:31:17

APPLAUSE

0:31:200:31:21

I've made such an impact on my parents' lives.

0:31:290:31:32

Before I was born, Father had a nasty habit

0:31:320:31:35

of running off and leaving Mother for months on end.

0:31:350:31:37

When I came on the scene they gazed at me in the crib,

0:31:370:31:40

held hands, and ran off together.

0:31:400:31:42

Such...

0:31:530:31:55

Such was the pattern of my earlier years.

0:31:550:31:58

I seldom speak of my childhood, unless someone's buying the drinks.

0:31:580:32:01

It was not a happy time.

SINGLE VIOLIN PLAYS

0:32:040:32:06

-ALL:

-Aww.

0:32:060:32:07

Is that a violin?

0:32:090:32:11

No, it isn't!

0:32:120:32:13

It's the frustrated wail of a doctored tom.

0:32:130:32:16

Yes...

0:32:190:32:20

You think you've known tragedy?!

0:32:220:32:24

For a start, I wasn't expected.

0:32:250:32:28

Mother was firmly convinced she was going into hospital

0:32:280:32:31

to have a boil lanced.

0:32:310:32:32

Looking back in retrospective thought,

0:32:380:32:41

I must have looked a mess, because the first job my father did

0:32:410:32:44

when they brought me home was to put shutters on my pram.

0:32:440:32:47

He made no secret of the fact he didn't like me.

0:32:540:32:58

He used to play some rotten tricks on me.

0:32:580:33:01

-ALL:

-Aww.

-Yes!

0:33:010:33:02

Like telling me for years the gas meter was a piggy bank.

0:33:020:33:05

Mummy was short-sighted.

0:33:120:33:15

And she would persist in putting talcum powder on my face.

0:33:150:33:18

Between you and I, I've often shuddered to think

0:33:200:33:22

what she did with my dummy.

0:33:220:33:24

It wasn't easy for my parents. We were a big family.

0:33:340:33:38

Lot of children. In fact, there were so many wet nappies in the kitchen

0:33:380:33:42

there was a rainbow in the lobby.

0:33:420:33:44

But there is to posterity

0:33:470:33:50

one thing left, which will never die.

0:33:500:33:53

And that was the fact that Father was a wonderful mountaineer.

0:33:530:33:56

Famous for once having been trapped

0:33:560:33:58

23,000 feet up the side of Mount Everest, on a two-inch ledge,

0:33:580:34:01

carrying his lame mule to safety...

0:34:010:34:03

LAUGHTER

0:34:030:34:05

..on the back of a plasterer's hod.

0:34:090:34:11

Face it, dear friends, you and I would have panicked!

0:34:130:34:16

He didn't. He fell off.

0:34:200:34:22

APPLAUSE

0:34:250:34:27

Some people appreciate my work.

0:34:320:34:35

This letter arrived in the dressing room not so long ago,

0:34:350:34:38

tied with pink ribbon to a coping stone.

0:34:380:34:40

LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE

0:34:460:34:48

Heh-heh!

0:34:530:34:55

Ho-ho-ho!

0:34:550:34:56

Little Bo Peep has lost her sheep and doesn't know where to find them.

0:34:560:35:00

What piffle!

0:35:000:35:02

Because you know why she couldn't find them?

0:35:030:35:05

She was in the meadow with Simple Simon.

0:35:050:35:07

And he wasn't so simple!

0:35:070:35:09

He was having it off!

0:35:100:35:11

What the world needs now is love, love, love.

0:35:130:35:15

I must stop this.

0:35:180:35:20

Every time I put these glasses on, a hideous doppelganger takes over.

0:35:210:35:25

This is the letter.

0:35:250:35:27

It's very emotive - it will move you to tears.

0:35:270:35:31

It reads very simply, "Dear Mr Dawson."

0:35:310:35:34

Look at the way she's spelled "dear" - D-E-A-R.

0:35:340:35:37

"You have done more for me than any specialist could ever hope to do.

0:35:440:35:48

"For years I have suffered from acute insomnia.

0:35:510:35:54

"My nights abed were a restless misery.

0:35:540:35:57

"Sleep, the soothing balm, eluded me.

0:35:590:36:02

"I've had treatment all over the world - in Europe,

0:36:020:36:06

"Zurich, Rhyl...

0:36:060:36:08

"..to no avail.

0:36:130:36:15

"But you, dear Mr Dawson, you have cured me.

0:36:170:36:21

"I saw you on The Good Old Days and I couldn't keep my eyes open."

0:36:260:36:29

Goodnight!

0:36:290:36:31

APPLAUSE AND CHEERING

0:36:310:36:34

Germany! Unparalleled apotheosis

0:36:530:36:58

of plethoric, proliferative profusion.

0:36:580:37:05

Lots and lots.
