"JUKE BOX JURY"
1959 to 1967, 1979, and 1989 to 1990.


Juke Box Jury was a pop themed panel show, originally produced by BBC television
from 1959-1967, the first edition having been broadcast on 1 June 1959. It was based
on a show which began on US Television in 1948, starring Hollywood DJ Peter Potter,
itself an offshoot of a long-running radio series.

It was axed towards the end of 1967 after falling ratings, but revived on two occasions,
the first time with Noel Edmonds as presenter (in 1979), and the second time with
Jools Holland (from 1989 to 1990). The theme music for the show was called
"Hit and Miss" and was performed by "The John Barry Seven".

The following clip is a section from a programme in 1960. Below that is a
"Six-Five Special" collection of 1960's pop stars including many who are still around today.
Will you be able to identify them?




The "Six-Five Special" was a British television programme launched in February 1957
when both television and rock and roll were in their infancy in Britain.

"Six-Five Special" was the BBC's first attempt at a rock and roll programme,
an innovation and much imitated, even today. It was called "Six-Five Special" because
of the time it was broadcast - it went out live at five past six on Saturday evening.
It began immediately after the abolition of the "Toddlers' Truce", which had seen
television close between 6 and 7pm so children could be put to bed.
Below is "Six-Five Special" collection of 1960's pop stars including many
who are still around today. How many can you remember?
