From Daily Mirror

Don't drop RSG plead fans. Hundreds of teenagers throughout Britain have been protesting since it was announced that the "Ready, Steady, Go!" show is to be dropped in December (writes Ken Irwin)."We have simply been snowed under with complaints said a Rediffuision TV spokesman. But, we are not relenting because we think we have a much better show to take the place of RSG, Elkan Allan, Rediffusion's head of entertainment has been telling us about the plans for the new show. “It’s going to be the swingingest thing on the screen” he said confidently " the new show will make more use of film - we will shoot a lot of it out of doors and we will be using cartoons”. It is unlikely that the show will have a regular compare. “Unless we get a lot of complaints after the new show begins - on 7 January – there is no chance of RSG coming back”
