Ex-pirate and later Radio One DJ Henry had proved himself not just a likeable and
respected radio personality but a successful face on TV with his Top Of The Pops
appearances starting in 1968, but by late March 1969 he had been given the boot in
favour of Tony Blackburn and used the opportunity given to him by the press to plug
his own Tyne Tees show.
Newcastle's Tyne Tees gave him the chance of his own show where he would introduce
his guests and answer viewer's questions. There would be a main, usually musical,
guest who would in turn select and introduce a act new to TV. Guests would include
Alan Price, Happy Magazine, Una Stubbs, The Scaffold, Donald Peers and Hughie Green.
The thirty-minute, seven week series was produced by Roy (Royston) Mayoh who would
also produce Opportunity Knocks for Thames.
