TV Times No. 98:  Northern Edition Sep 15 - 21 1957

Cover: Ventriloquist Edgar Bergen with the vaudeville puppet character Charlie McCarthy

This is an edition that is a “must have” for those interested in the early days of television. It commemorates the second anniversary of ITV, at least for London viewers. On page 6, the Managing Directors of the major contractors comment on the first two years. Gerald Scheff writes on page 7 about the special to be aired on Friday (birthday) night, Salute to Show Business. Quite an array of stars turned out for the occasion, headlined by Peter Sellers, Margaret Lockwood and Dickie Valentine.

The Sunday Morning Church Service was to hold the 11AM and later 10 AM slot for over twenty years, providing opportunities for the OB crews around the regions to gain an occasional network showing. More usually, the big ATV and ABC stations took it in turns to hold their OB crews overnight after Saturday Sportstime for a church service in the same vicinity. Read about the concept and the scheduling decision on page 19.

The cover shows the stars of this week’s Chelsea at Nine. Edgar Bergen was the ventriloquist and Charlie McCarthy, his best loved character. On page 11, there is an article and pictures of other members of the star’s puppetry, Effie Klinker and happy “hayseed” Mortimer Snerd.

Another unique comedian of the period was Max Wall who was to host his own weekly show. Read the article on his many faces and characters on pages 20-21, the |prolific writer of scripts and gags”. Another popular entertainer of the years to come was Max Bygraves. Read about his early career on page 18. ABC had a new star variety show for music hall entertainers described in an article on page 9. One of the new stars to be featured was Lonnie Donnegan.

The article on page 12 looks at a rare local programme for its day, ABC Investigates. The programmes, 45 minutes in length and able to present more in-depth stories than was usual, were shown fortnightly. In addition, page 10 introduces Gerry Loftus, one of ITV’s earliest sports anchors or “editors”, who presented Granada’s Sports Outlook. His vision was of a sports programme that not only brought to the public the stars of the day but also those of tomorrow, those currently playing in the amateur clubs. Would that such youngsters could have continued to have such encouragement and we may have seen better results from later soccer teams in Britain.

Author and playwright, JB Priestley writes on authoring his first play for ITV. A more popular form of drama was the English film series, The New Adventures of Charlie Chan which began this week. Ful page article and pictures on page 13.

This edition of TV Times is Almost Mint having been stored on a two hole punch and the staples removed so that rusting can be prevented. Browning is only slight and there is slight rusting from the staples. The spine is strong and there is no writing and no tears.

What's a max bid?
Your max bid should be the highest amount you're willing to pay for an item.
We keep your max bid amount a secret from the seller and other bidders.
Max bidding example:
If a current bid is £20 and your max bid is £30, we bid £21 for you.
If no one else bids, you win and pay £21.
However, if someone else places a bid for £35, you will be out bid and the new highest bid on the auction will be £31. You will need to increase your max bid to more than £35 to be the highest bidder.
