Sidney Atwood, Peter Eton, Pat Newman
May 16th, 2021, 10:26pm
 
Hi there - I am editing my parents' letters from 1945.They were actors, Joy Shelton and Sydney Tafler, who worked a lot for the BBC. I have come across the following passage: "Peter Eton was telling me the other day that the BBC are doing their best to make Sidney Atwood stay and they are ignoring offers to fill the post. Pat Newman applied for it, but as yet, they have not had the courtesy to answer."
I know who Peter Eton was - I am thinking Pat Newman might be Patrick Newman who was a variety agent who joined the BBC in 1946 as a talent booker. But who was Sidney Atwood?
