'The Story of Cinderella' was a radio play broadcast on Christmas Eve 1955. Radio engineer Ernest Tomlinson transcribed two melodies from an earlier work by Eric 'Dambusters' Coates to feature at focal points in the play; everything else was newly-composed. The score was a turning-point in Tomlinson's career - it gave him the opportunity to become a full-time composer.
