John and Livvy left the stage and Anthony too who came back on soon after to sing his own first set including This is The Moment which seemed particularly well enjoyed.
It was now time for Livvy to leave the stage albeit temporarily as she then duetted with John Farnham on his hit "Touch of Paradise" one of the few songs of his I like.
John then sang a few bars of "Banks of the Ohio" before Livvy launched into a rousing and humorous version of "Jolene" with her saying loudly "Jolene please take these men" - really funny.

 John Langdon-Davies   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
So far as John Langdon-Davies is concerned, the Lecture amounts largely to a chronicle of unfounded statements and insinuations which should be corrected.
For example, Langdon-Davies is supposed, first, to have had 'an initial fascination with anarchism', and then to have undergone an almost Pauline conversion to a toe-the-communist-line stance, which deprived him of his previous capacity to write well-informed articles based on insight and observation rather than on somebody else's Line.
Certain reservations that we felt about parts of the Biography were only crystallised when we received the printed version of the Lecture which, with all its affirmations of Langdon-Davies's good works and 'rich ideological life', gave a condensed image of him which was clearly offensive and, as history, incorrect.

In the course of his lecture on Orwell to the Anglo-Catalan Society, Dr Miquel Berga makes a number of references to John Langdon-Davies which misrepresent his thinking and his work.
It is not the task of the serious researcher to fill the gaps he finds with partisan conjecture, but Berga does exactly this, demonstrating his complete failure to get inside his subject.
If he had taken the trouble to speak at greater length to those who knew John Langdon-Davies personally, his picture of him might have been more accurate.
