LESLIE CROWTHER - SIGNED PHOTO
Small colour photo of Leslie and his wife. Signed by Leslie on the back.

Crowther made a name for himself in television in the 1950s, with appearances as presenter of such programmes as Billy Cotton Band Show and The Black and White Minstrel Show, and later the long-running children's institution Crackerjack (with Peter Glaze) for the BBC, from 1960 to 1968. In September 1967, Leslie Crowther was the presenter chosen to host the first series of the re-vamped Children's Favourites show, Junior Choice, on the newly opened Radio One station.

From 1964-67 Crowther presented Meet the Kids, an annual trip to a children's hospital ward that was screened by the BBC on Christmas Morning. He would walk around the ward meeting the patients, and the show would feature a surprise celebrity, and a present hidden under each bed. Typical locations were Great Ormond Street or Hackney Hospitals. In 1969 Crowther defected to ITV and A Merry Morning was screened annually, following the same format, usually from the Seacroft Hospital in Leeds.

From the 1970s, Crowther also achieved fame as the face of Stork SB Margarine for which he appeared in a number of television commercials. In 1971 he made The Leslie Crowther Show, a comedy sketch show, with three older comics, Arthur English, Chic Murray and Albert Modley ("Eee it's grand to be daft!") as the internal "rep" company. In 1972 and 1973 he appeared in a television sitcom called My Good Woman with Richard Wilson, Sylvia Syms and Keith Barron. He also narrated two storytelling LPs for children, Tallulah Supercat and "Tallulah and the Cat-Burglars".


rowther was one of the many hosts of the ITV panel/game show Whose Baby? which he presented in the mid-1980s. He also presented the fifth series of Southern Television's children's game show Runaround in 1977, standing in for Mike Reid. He is also remembered as host of the first British version of the popular game show The Price Is Right, from 1984 to 1988, during which time his Come on down! catchphrase entered British television folklore. In 1994, Crowther said that when The Price is Right was axed in May 1988, the producers never bothered to contact him directly. Instead, he learned the news from the press who called at his house and asked him how he felt.

In February 1990 Crowther was chosen to be host of the TV show Stars in Their Eyes. The first episode was transmitted on 21 July 1990. Crowther hosted the first three series, and a Christmas Special in 1991. At the time of his car accident in October 1992, he was booked to record an Elvis Presley special, and a fourth series.
