From Record Mirror 6th September 1975

"Granada Television are currently working on a new pop programme, called Look Alive. The show, planned to run 13 weeks, will go out on full ITV network on October 14 at 4.25 pm. Pop star Stephanie de Sykes will hostess the series and it is planned to include top pop groups, as well as giving a break to artists who have as yet to make it. Look Alive will have a regular fashion shot, with top models showing the latest trends, like chamois leather, denim and Roller gear. There will also be a chat spot, which will feature people not so directly involved in pop music. An example is Michael Davis of the Halle Orchestra, who will appear in the first programme."
