Grotty TV gem from 1965

Thanks to Matt Lucas for sending me this totally bizarre and grotty gem from 1965. Stars and Garters was a variety show, broadcast live (I assume) from a pub. Apart from the really odd presenter, Ray Martine, look out for Diana Dors, the bloke singing in the high voice at around 13 mins, and the closing song that seems completely out of sync. Also, everyone – EVERYONE – is smoking. Click on the ‘Vimeo’ box below to watch.

Stars and Garters S03E01 (1st Febuary 1965) [UN (Xvid)] from Matty on Vimeo.

Directed by ‘Rollo Gamble’. What a name.

  • Personal highlight: the guy trying to sneak past for a piss at 10:47

  • rebekah ford

    Great closing titles! The whole thing is bizarre and wonderful
