Following a one-hour pilot in July 1973, this short-lived variety and comedy revue show from ATN7 in Sydney debuted on 12 October and starred John Derum, Gerry Gallagher, Sue Walker and Emma Gray.
Guests included Jesus Christ Superstar stars Reg Livermore, Marcia Hines, Jon English and Trevor White; singers Julie Anthony, Judy Stone, Ted Mulry, John Farnham, Ronnie Burns and Marty Rhone; and actors Leonard Teale, Ron Shand (Herb Evans from Number 96) and Grant Whiteman.
Recorded before a live studio audience, the show tried too hard to shock using an outmoded format to do it, with The Age in Melbourne dubbing it “The True Bore Show”.
Channel Seven moved the show from Friday nights to Wednesday nights in November after only four episodes aired.
The final broadcast was on Wednesday 6 February 1974.
