Leslie Crowther starred in this London Weekend Television series providing 35-minutes a week of music, chat and comedy sketches.

Crowther was joined each week by Anita Harris and Lonnie Donegan (and eventually, Susan Maughan, pictured above left) along with a group of “boys and girls” – comprising Sheila Bernette (pictured above right), Sheila O’Neill, Dennis Ramsden, Frances Barlow and Billy Boyle – who sang, danced and played in the sketches. The dance director was Peter Gordeno.

Occasional guests included The 5th Dimension, Leapy Lee and Frankie Avalon.
