Sunday Night at the London Palladium: Volume 2
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 14 million and Top Ten placings almost every week, it is undoubtedly one of the main shows that helped establish commercial television in the UK.
This was a weekly television event that appealed to all classes, denominations and age groups - an unquestionable success which still provides a high benchmark that today’s variety shows can only aspire to. This DVD set contains some of the best of what remains in the archives (in its guise as The New London Palladium Show) for the original 1960s run, including one edition from 1966 in full colour. These editions include Bruce Forsyth, Jimmy Tarbuck. Cliff Richard and the Shadows, Peter Cook and Dudley Moore, The Searchers, Frankie Howerd, The Hollies, Arthur Haynes, Des O’Connor, Spike Milligan, Cleo Laine, The Johnny Dankworth Seven and many more.
