Betty Driver, Violet Carson, Muriel Levy, Doris Campbell

Betty Driver's entry popped up in my feed from the ODNB this morning. It was good on her early variety and film career, and the later Coronation Street days for which she is most famous, but said nothing about her work for regional Children's Hour between those times.

Violet Carson's musical contribution to BBC North Region is also largely overlooked. A programme chosen at random is here. Carson, Muriel Levy and Doris Campbell also performed as The Three Semis. If the names of Campbell and Levy are not recognised nowadays, it is probably because they did not make it on to Coronation Street.
