Be Our Guest

1 9 6 6 (Australia)

beourguestAustralian show Be Our Guest was an attempt by the Australian ABC-TV to capture a slice of the late daytime viewing audience, designed to please the whole family from early teens to Dad and Mum.

Contrived but entertaining, the nightly 30-minute programme was a display of the talents of the showbiz guests who stayed at an airport motel.

Lorraine Bayly played an air hostess and a young Jacki Weaver played a delightful teenager. Sean Scully played her cousin.

The show received a lukewarm reception from TV critics who panned both its production and its lack of storyline.

19-year-old Weaver married the show’s producer, David Price, on 12 November 1966. They divorced in 1970.
