Vernon Corea’s daughter, Ouida Corea-Wickramaratne recently visited Sri Lanka in July 2014. She visited the iconic Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation and met with the veteran Sri Lankan broadcasters. Photographs show Ouida Corea-Wickramaratne with Nihal Bhareti who had a very distinctive voice – he joined Radio Ceylon in the 1960s and still presents radio programmes over the airwaves of the Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation in Colombo, Sri Lanka.
