Any self-respecting teenyboppers were glued to the telly on Saturday mornings in the mid-70s to watch the LWT glam rock showcase Saturday Scene presented by pint-sized popstress (and future Tiswas co-host) Sally James.
One of the programmes incorporated into Saturday Scene was London Bridge, a magazine-type show aimed at viewers aged from 11 to 16.
Considerably more anarchic than anything on “the other side” at that time and with James’ eye for current fashion ensuring a regular audience of dads as well, Saturday Scene‘s success pushed James – hitherto a little-known actress – firmly into the public eye with regular columns in Look-In and other publications and even a short-lived recording career.
The show was renamed Supersonic Saturday Scene in 1977 when pop show Supersonic was merged back into the show which gave birth to it originally in 1975.
