TV Pop Diaries
Popular Music on British Television
7th July 1962 -
Another pop show for producer Johnnie Stewart, this time trying to catch the falling star that was The Twist.
Hosted by Juke Box Jury's David Jacobs it was launched as a summer filler show for late night Saturdays attracting an unusually adult audience considering the dance's teenage origins.
Each week two teams of twisters from popular BBC TV shows would compete for a trophy, judged by a different pair of celebrities each week. In addition, two or three singers would appear each week.
Also seen as Twist! Music With A Beat.
An extract from the final show is thought to be all that exists from the series.
