I've been looking at this again and comparing it with the one that Stewart found a couple of years ago of Thames Television's Drive In
programme - see: Morgan in 1975
I thought it interesting that both items were made in 1975 but looking closer I see more similarities.
The Thames Television programme was broadcast on 21st August 1975
The BBC ran the Nationwide
item the evening before! Nationwide
, as I'm sure many will recall, was a magazine type programme similar to today's One Show
. I have no doubt that the BBC prepared their item to get in ahead of ITV's scheduled broadcast the following night. Having said that, the Drive In
report is more detailed.
(As an aside, I don't recall seeing either programme at the time but by sheer fluke I know exactly what I was doing when Nationwide
was broadcast. I was in the pub with the rest of my family celebrating my parents' 20th wedding anniversary!)
