This is the eighth show of 13 recorded for export to the United States. It is now thought that this original telerecording, once catalogued with ABC at Teddington, Middlesex until 1968, may be in the private hands of someone in the United Kingdom.

Also some of the 13 copies sent to America are known to exist and in the possession of a private collector in Arizona or New Mexico.

This is Michael Cox’s only appearance. He and Billy Fury were photographed with a couple of the Vernons Girls on the day of this broadcast.  (See photo at right)

Nicky Martin makes his only appearance, singing Jerry Lee Lewis' "Big Blon' Baby"

(For list of songs performed in this show, see the "Who sang what?" page)
