Despite passing several auditions
for the television talent show "Opportunity Knocks" it was'nt until 6th
March 1978 that we were asked to appear. It was the very last voting
show. Hughie Green had decided to call it a day. At the time we had just
released an EP of four songs which were written by Arthur.
Dulay who was the producer at the time, liked our performance of one of
the tracks, "Mississippi Candlelight". We had to dress appropriately for
the song so Country & Western outfits were the order of the
The filming was at Thames Television Studios, London.
Janice Nicholls of "Thank your Lucky Stars" fame was our sponsor.
Of course in 1978 we didn't have a video recorder so were
unable to get a copy of "Opportunity Knocks" at that time. However, as
you are all aware, certain things come back to haunt you & in 2000
we were featured on a programme called "It's Only TV but I Like It". It
was a quiz show hosted by Jonathon Ross. The production company were
kind enough to send us a copy of the whole show from '78. So thanks to
Open Mike productions we can now embarrass the grandkids!!
