BBC Arts Review Alistair McCheyne review Sivell Murals p 3

Here is a transcription of an BBC on-air review of the Aberdeen Student Union Murals, recorded on 13 June 1953 & aired the following day. The review includes some description of the murals (8 panels all 10' high varying in width), and reflects the rather uneven quality & level of finish of the different panels. It has been understood in the family that Sivell's students participated in this several year long project,and also some examples of his unfinished sketches support the idea that this work was never completed.
