BBC Written Archives, Shaw Obituary, File 91
Newton relates BR's agreement to give an obituary of George Bernard Shaw on the occasion of his death. Newton suggests Matthews remind BR of this: "As he is sometimes forgetful — one is never quite sure when this is involuntary...." BR also stated that Shaw "is clearly immortal" and that the BBC is gambling if they think BR will outlive Shaw, but they should not have Shaw do an obituary for BR. He did one for himself back in the 1930s .
