Jack Hylton Presents PDF/EPUB Ð Jack Hylton Kindle -


Jack Hylton Presents Fromto , Jack Hylton, former theatre impresario and band leader, presented some of the greatest names in British variety for Associated Rediffusion from Tony Hancock and the Crazy Gang to Dickie Henderson and Arthur Askey This volume tells his story It chronicles Hylton s time as ITV s first independent light entertainment producer and explores the background of thesurviving programmes The research is based on study of all the films in the NFTVA s Hylton collection, as well as on interviews with many of the people who worked on the programmes, including writers Dick Vosburgh and Eric Sykes, and artist Alfred Marks The book also contains cast and credit details for all the surviving programmes Anyone interested in the early days of ITV in Britain 1955 to the early 1960s will find this book a real gem It s not a huge work but covers its subject incredibly well, giving not just the background to how and why bandleader Jack Hylton came to be a TV impresario but also his relationship with London company Associated Rediffusion and the bosses at ITV The book lists in some detail the productions that Mr Hylton presented , the majority of which unfortunately failed to please either viewers or critics This book will not look out of place on the shelves of a TV history enthusiast The cover, by the way, looks very strange on first glance as it s taken from one of the shows and shows Tony Hancock with a very young June Whitfield. This book was published at the time of the season of programmes at the BFI south bank.I remember some of these programmes from their original screening.I particularly remember the Crazy Gang.Very entertaining read.
