"The Golden Shot"

Post by Mark »

I don't know what paperwork exists for it, apart from some scripts, but it would be interesting to know.

Unless there is one on TV Brain, there doesn't seem to be a credit for Actress Sheila White's appearance on the 7/6/70 edition, which also features Hughie Green and an "Op Knocks" skit on the forthcoming General Election, I'm guessing she was a Guest Golden Girl that week.

No credit in the TV Times or the KAl guide, which seems a little odd?

It's definitely Sheila White, in the pictures, there's about 1200 images on Shutterstock from the show, mostly from the Bob Monkhouse run, there are some from the Norman Vaughan shows, but sadly not many from the Charlie Williams ones.

Really helpful when most of the editions are gone, although there are many images mislabelled or not known who they feature, including Freddie Parrot Face Davies, Anita Harris, Dana.

All the shots of Yutte Stensgaard are mislabelled as Andrea Lloyd, but include some of her attempting to demonstrate prizes whilst trying to cope with a wind machine or in a shower unit and getting deluged ( you can just see the sound man with a mic crouched away from the unit.

I'm also trying to work out what Frank Ifield ( also not known in description) was singing with a background of photo blow ups of Alexandra Bastedo!, the shots appear to have been taken from a studio monitor as well.

There are some shots from what I think must be the Xmas show 1970, with Anne Aston dressed as Alice, and Ken Dodd as The Mad Hatter, ping pong balls being thrown between the stars and the audience in a couple of shots.

There is also a photo of Bob and Jimmy Young presenting a Gold (or silver) disc to four lads, the description says they are either footballers or pop stars, but as it's Young with a disc!...it is in fact The Mixtures, presumably for their hit, the Pushbike Song (bet they sang it on the show as well).

There are about four colour shots of Des O'Connor dated 1974, which mentions they were recordings used as VT inserts, he does appear on a run of shows in the final series.

Still looking through them, but they are fascinating, saw the shows at the time, can't recall much of what happened though!

A couple of nice shots of Frankie Howerd dressed as Lurcio, doing an "Up Pompei" routine, and one or two shots of the "Father Dear Father" cast (Ann Holloway and Natasha Pyne sitting in the empty audience seats with Bob, as they were Golden Girls for the edition) shame there's none of the "Randall And Hopkirk" or "Please Sir" cast though.

Hardly anything from the Jackie Rae editions sadly.

there are some from the existing Norman Vaughan show, including some shots of Larry Grayson chatting to Buddy Greco, ( they don't meet on screen, the KAL guide has this edition down as 11/2/73, but several regions of TV Times has the guest line up for the previous weeks show (as listed in KAL?).

Some nice pictures from the 200th show, Bob and a giant Birthday cake, pulls a slice away with Yutte Stensgaard inside, also shots of guests including Patrick Allen and Golden Girl Chelsea Brown.

Was this the archery-themed one OB from Warwick Castle?

Yes, the pics show the usual studio set, I don't recall the edition ( must have seen it though, regular viewing for us).

Some pics show Anne Aston with Patrick Allen and a packet of 'Sudsy Soap Flakes', presumably a skit on Allen's VO work on commercials.

There are some pictures of Bob Monkhouse and producer Mike Lloyd (from 1970) showing off the suitcase joystick box, which plugs on to the viewers telephone using tones and bleeps to control the bow in the studio, and also the 'Golden Car' which went round the country with it.

Don't know how long that was used for though.

Some nice shots of John Bluthal and Joe Lynch, doing a skit with Bob, obviously based on "Never Mind The Quality, Feel The Width".

Another appearance of them with Norman Vaughan and possibly doing the same routine!

Roses grow on him! Is that thought to be "Swinging!" or "Dodgy".

'Oooh!'....Yes he was good entertainer, and ended up more than comfortably off, co-devising "Bullseye".

Probably the best of the hosts after Bob Monkhouse, although Pete Murray stood in for Bob for a couple of weeks, he was always very good, there are some shots of him in one of his two shows alongside guest Dora Bryan.

There's also some nice posed shots of Anne Aston, Derren Nesbitt, Bob Monkhouse and Luan Peters, the two chaps ( brandishing Crossbows) sandwiched in between the two golden Girls!
