Debuting on ITV’s opening weekend in 1955, Sunday Night at the London Palladium swiftly established itself as one of the weekly televisual highlights and was one of the core shows that helped establish commercial television in the UK, transcending class, denomination and age group – an unquestionable success which still provides a high benchmark that today’s variety shows can only aspire to.

Hosted mainly by Bruce Forsyth and Jimmy Tarbuck, this set contains what little remains in the archives for the series, and guests featured include Beryl Reid, Adam Faith (with the John Barry Seven), Bobby Darin, Cleo Laine and the Johnny Dankworth Seven, Pinky and Perky, Sarah Vaughan, Freddie and the Dreamers, Mario Lanza, Larry Grayson, Jim Dale, Paul Anka, Rod Hull and Emu, Ted Rogers, Sacha Distel, Bob Monkhouse, Clodagh Rodgers, Cliff Richard and the Shadows, The Searchers, The Hollies, Arthur Haynes, Des O’Connor – and many more.
