Pop Music on British Television 1955 - 1999

From TV Times - “A gay half-hour of Western-style music set against the background of a Canadian dude ranch.”  

One of several barn dance shows that were popular at the time featuring country flavoured hoe-downs, this one set in a Canadian style ranch house, designed by Canadian Tom Spaulding complete with a moose head borrowed from a Salford museum.

Regulars Libby Morris and Bill O’Connor, both Canadian have also appeared on similar shows back home, while the other regulars Jackie Lee, The Maple Leaf Four, Sonia Rees, Danny Levan and The Ranch Hands just had to pretend to be Canadian.

After a one-off show on a Monday night it was shifted to early Wednesday evenings for the rest of its run. The show was directed by Philip Jones.
