THE SANDIE SHAW SUPPLEMENT

BBC 1
10th September 1968 - 5th November 1968

Having won the Eurovision Song Contest in 1967 it was seen by many as though the BBC were rewarding her with her on series, but Sandie would not be visiting the BBC Television Centre for this one entirely. Many of the songs were shot on location around the UK while each show had a theme in which the songs performed were hung around, sometimes looking almost avant garde the show proved too much for a public expecting to see her performing skits and sketches like Dusty and Lulu and the show was not re-commissioned for a second series.


Only two shows out of the six made still survive.
