NB Dee was contracted to host a further 13 shows but London Weekend chose to pay him off instead at a cost of £7000. By December he would be signing on at his local unemployment exchange. A possibility of a new series for the BBC by the end of the year came to nothing, despite his champion at the BBC Bill Cotton Jnr becoming the Head of Entertainment after the death of Tom Sloan, who had previously been happy to let Dee go. However, Derek Nimmo’s Saturday evening chat and music show had been a success, so Dee had to be put to one side.
