You're in luck, steereo. When I saw that 15th July date in your post I was a bit anxious as I don't have that
week's issue, so nothing on the debut of Mission to the Moon, unfortunately, but I'm very pleased to say
that I have the listing for that "marathon David Frost show", which looks as if it lasted from 6.15 in the eve-
ning to 4.30 the following afternoon. The Romper Room - back to haunt me again - was the first show
broadcast when ITV's schedule returned to normal (in the Anglia region anyway).
No mention of Ken Dodd but I wouldn't be at all surprised if HE surprised David Frost with his tickling stick!
I'm glad I've had the opportunity to include that advertisement with the cat as it regularly appears in TVTimes
from that period. I always enjoyed Peter Fairley's Science reports for ITN but am just too young to remember
this, as usual. Prior to this lengthy broadcast the film Fort Apache was shown, preceded by Nice Time, which
I knew was hosted by Kenny Everett and Germaine Greer, but the other presenters are credited as actress
Sandra Gough, Irma in Coronation Street, and Jonathan Routh from Candid Camera. I learned somewhere
that future BBC Director General John Birt was involved. IMDB reminds me he was the producer.
There were six pages devoted to the Moon landings, which I can post (in installments!) between others' replies, if they can tear themselves away from the Katie Price and James Blunt threads that is.
