Ming's research for the Q&A went above and beyond and she turned up all sorts of interesting nuggets of information much of which was found in THIS BOOK. Unfortuantley it's extremely expensive at the moment but is available to read in the BFI Library.
She also stumbled upon this - a record of the time Seymour Hicks's beloved wife and business partner, Ellaline Terris, appeared on This is Your Life.
