Sunday Night At The London Palladium Vol-1


In stock

Making its debut on ITV's opening weekend in 1955, Sunday Night at the London Palladium swiftly established itself as one of the weekly televisual highlights for the British viewing public. Gaining average viewing figures of 1.4 million and Top Ten placings almost every week, it is undoubtedly one of the main shows that helped establish commerical television in the UK.

This was a weekly television event that appealed to all classes, denominations and age groups - a unquestionable success which still provides a high benchmark that today's variety shows can only inspire to. This DVD set - released to celebrate Londom Palladium's centenary - contains some of the best of what remains in the archives for the original run from the 1950s and '60s, with hosts including Tommy Trinder, Bruce Forsyth and Hugh Green. It also includes the special two-hander show from December 1961 that featured only Norman Wisdom and Bruce Forsyth, alongside some of the remaining shows from the 1970s revival. These additions include Beryl Reid, Adam Faith playing with the John Barry Seven, Bobby Darin, Pinky & Perky, Sarah Vaughan, Freddie and the Dreamers, Mario Lanza, Larry Grayson, Jim Dale, Paul Anka, Rod Hull and Emu, Ted Rogers, Sacha Distel, Cliff Richard, Bob Monkhouse, Clodagh Rodgers and many more.
