    British Pop and Music Television Shows of the Sixties

The first BBC pop programme  Six-Five Special  hit our screens on 16th February 1957, introduced by Peter Murray and Josephine Douglas, ending on 22nd November 1958 when the legendary Jack Good moved to Independent Television
. A little-known 'rock' programme called Galaxy was also transmitted by ITV in 1958. Other
pre-1960 pop shows which evolved the general format of the early Sixties shows included  Dig This!  Oh Boy!  Drumbeat  and Associated Rediffusion's  Cool For Cats  which started on 31st December 1956 and survived until 1961, going out originally for 15 minutes on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and featuring Rock'n'Roll and other contemporary music. It was introduced by Kent Walton, of Saturday afternoon wrestling fame, and Ker Robertson. The ground-breaking show was devised and directed by Joan Kemp-Welch.
So . . . let's go! I hope you can find what you are looking for or, if you're just browsing, enjoy the memories. Some thumbnails are linked to larger images. If you can remember or think of any shows I've left out - there must be a few!
