Saturday Night Affairs

ANOTHER WOEFULLY misguided effort from the regions (see SIN ON SATURDAY) to fill the 10.30pm slot when Parky, Carrott and Wogan were on holiday. See if you can spot the mistakes here: each week an “international celebrity” would “throw” a “party” for their “friends” at Pebble Mill, where the cameras would rove around the proceedings, inviting us the viewer to experience the high life from our own armchair. The first “host” was VIDAL SASSOON, the second, er, DAVE LEE TRAVIS. VICTOR SPINETTI was going to be the third, but the axe fortuitously fell.

    A lowpoint in the history of BBC1 and no doubt hastened the departure of Alan Hart. The Grade revolution was just around the corner.

    I’d rather see Victor Spinetti picking at tagnuts than Dave Lee Travis doing almost anything.
