Victoria Wood creates new musical play for Manchester International Festival

Victoria Wood is enjoying a return to songwriting with That Day We Sang, a musical play based on a recording of the Manchester Schoolchildren's Choir in 1929.

The play, which looks at what became of the group of working class children turned angelic choristers, runs until 17 July at Manchester Opera House.

Tim Muffett met the veteran comedian to talk about her comedy hits, her new play and being hailed as a national treasure.
