  1. Do you know if the Episode of Sundaty Night at the London Palladium from March 2nd., 1958 is to be shown? This was the 100th. show and featured Bob Hope as top of the bill. However, of more significance, it is the show on which Buddy Holly and The Crickets appeared, performing three songs. It would be of great interest to all Hoplly fans and of great importance to his legacy.
    Hoping you can help with any information.

    1. Hi John. As far as I know, only audio exists of Holly’s performance. This means it is unlikely to be shown as part of this package. 🙁

  2. Sadly, the Buddy Holly edition, like the vast majority of these shows was never recorded… it vanished the moment it was broadcast. What’s left in the archive is a pitiful amount compared to what was transmitted which is a real shame. Just the audio recorded by a fan watching the show is all that’s left and I think theres some photos as well. Hundreds of hours of great historical performances gone forever because Lew Grade never considered keeping these shows for posterity.
