Debuting on ITV's opening weekend in 1955, Sunday Night at the London Palladium swiftly established itself as one of the weekly televisual highlights for the British viewing public. Lasting fourteen years until 1969 (and enjoying a revival in the 1970s), the show gained average viewing figures of 14 million and Top Ten placings most weeks, and was one of the core shows that helped establish commercial television in the UK, transcending class, denomination and age group an unquestionable success which still provides a high benchmark that today's variety shows can only aspire to. The show s hosts included Tommy Trinder, Bruce Forsyth and Jimmy Tarbuck, and among its numerous guest performers were The Beatles, Pete and Dud, Frankie Howerd, Morecambe and Wise, Sammy Davis Jr., The Supremes, and Judy Garland. This DVD set contains some of the best of what little remains in the archives for the original run from the 1950s and 60s. It also includes the special two-hander show from February 1961 featuring only Norman Wisdom and Bruce Forsyth alongside some of the remaining shows from the 1970s revival. Guests in this set include Beryl Reid, Adam Faith (with the John Barry Seven), Bobby Darin, Cleo Laine and The Johnny Dankworth Seven, Pinky & Perky, Sarah Vaughan, Freddie and the Dreamers, Mario Lanza, Larry Grayson, Jim Dale, Paul Anka, Rod Hull and Emu, Ted Rogers, Sacha Distel, Cliff Richard, Bob Monkhouse, Clodagh Rodgers, Cliff Richard and the Shadows, The Searchers, The Hollies, Arthur Haynes, Des O Connor and many more.
