TV Pop Diaries
Pop Music on British Television 1955 - 1999

Another short lived pop series for Southern, this time hosted by Shaw "Keep 'Em Peeled" Taylor and Terence Carroll, and directed by Mike Mansfield as were so many of Southern's pop shows (Countdown, As You Like It, Pop The Question, Time For Blackburn, Ladybirds, New Release).


Rather than having pop stars turn up to perform by either singing or miming their new hit, this show tried to beneath the skin by examining the music business. Among the artists profiled were Adam Faith, Billy Fury, The Ivy League, Mark Wynter, Kenny Lynch, Tom Jones and The Dave Clark Five.


Although it wasn't networked by ITV it was shown by Border later in the year.
