TV Pop Diaries
Pop Music on British Television 1955 - 1999

A series of late night shows based on songs with a distinct theme each week, war, love, work, heroes, the wild west etc, or as TV Times put it "A programme of illustrated songs, sung from the heart."


The producers had the good taste to employ Alexis Korner as the musical director, who wasn't an unknown as he had also worked on Rediffusion's Five O'Clock Club. The show also gave valuable early recognition to Julie Felix, who over the next five years or so would become a familiar but welcome voice on British TV.


Despite introducing guests like Marrianne Faithfull, Buffy Sainte-Marie and Josh White the show only lasted for six editions.


A clip of Julie Felix from the 'work' edition was recovered and is on You Tube.
