Sunday Night At The London Palladium - Volume One & Two
Debuting 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. Lasting fourteen years until 1969 (and enjoying a revival in the 1970s), the show gained average viewing figures of 14 million and Top Ten placings most weeks, 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.
The show's hosts included Tommy Trinder, Bruce Forsyth and Jimmy Tarbuck, and among its numerous guest performers were The Beatles, Pete and Dud, Frankie Howerd, Morecambe and Wise, Sammy Davis Jr., The Supremes, and Judy Garland.
This 5-disc set contains the previous two released volumes, the highlights of what little of the series remains in ITV's archive.
First released: Monday 10th October 2011
If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
