Hey chaps, been a long time.

I've been watching the three new episodes of "Upstairs, Downstairs" that take place in 1936 and I have a question or two.

In one episode, the servants are downstairs on a stormy night, listening to the radio. Rose says "Ivy! You're missin' Palm Court Orchestra!"

I recognise the SONG ("The Way You Look Tonight"). But does anyone recognise the band or orchestra that performs that recording? You can watch the three episodes online. I believe the episode is the second one.

I did a search on Amazon but too many versions were listed (thousands). It must have been an extremely popular song. The BBC often stick to their archived database so I wouldn't be surprized if it's Henry Hall and the BBC dance orchestra. LOL. The vocalist sounds alot like Dan Donovan.

Still looking. However it might not be Henry Hall. This version sounds so familiar yet I just can't think when or where I heard it.
