Rediffusion 20th September 1966 - 29th December 1966
Not to be confused with a 1960 series with the same title. A fifty-five minute variety
show made as a co-production with CBS in America, with every edition made in colour.
Many circus acts would appear with comedians and a weekly pop act with the likes
of The Zombies, Dusty Springfield, The Everly Brothers making appearances along with
bears, elephants, lions and tigers in a recreation of a big top at Rediffusion's
large Wembley studio. Two camera crews worked on the show simultaneously, with one
colour crew working for CBS and the 405 line black and white cameras used for the
local ITV network showing, in fact it was the first British show made in colour to
be sold in the US.
