The BBC air the last “6.5 Special” pop show, which had been broadcast at the same time as Jack Good’s “Oh Boy!” in direct competition at 6pm on Saturday evenings.

The hour long “Oh Boy!” Christmas special planned in November for this date did not materialize.

During 1958 Cliff Richard had appeared in 13 of the 16 shows broadcast since 13th September 1958 and topped the bill on many of them. However he would only make 7 appearances during the remaining 22 shows broadcast from January to end of May 1959 due to a gruelling schedule of live appearances. He would appear on 17th & 31st January and then not be seen for five weeks until 7th March. He would make just 4 more appearances-  28th March, 3rd May, 23rd May, and the last show on 30th May, which is the only surviving one where Cliff is featured.
