The bass player by the bottom right corner of the film screen is the principal bassist with the RPO, Edmund (Nick) Chesterman.

Clarinetist Jack Brymer can be seen sitting on his own on the left-hand-side; a SMOKING fixer Sid Margo can be seen next to JB.
Ron Prentice is the bass guitarist in the booth and we think mandolin player Hugo Dalton is next to him.
