Thames Tony Bennett at the Talk Of The Town 10:30 - 11:00 pm (first edition)

NB Although made for Thames, Bennett paid the artist and musician fees in return for international sales rights. This made the show an independently made series, causing problems with the TV unions. Equity regarded it to be a part of the “American quota negotiations”. Thames then pulled the series from its expected April debut until July. Sacha Distel was meant to be a guest on the final recording of the series, but failed to turn up as he was recording his own French TV show. Talking to the Daily Mirror a spokesman for Bennett said " We will be doing another thirteen programmes later in the year, and Sacha Distel will be a guest on one of these. We always intended opening the series and closing it without a guest artist, so we taped the closing programme instead."
