On 13 September 1958 a new show appeared on ITV which was the first all-music British television show aimed solely at entertaining young people (unlike the BBC’s ‘Six Five Special‘ which had been launched over a year-and-a-half earlier in early 1957 and had taken rather too seriously its aim to be ‘wholesome’ and ‘educational’). Here is the last episode broadcast of ‘Oh Boy!’ – of 38 episodes – which aired on 30 May 1959.
Here is episode #30 from the 04 April 1959
There is no need to go into depth in this article, since you are better off looking at the excellent dedicated ‘Oh Boy!’ website here.
*trunky123 (2018YTcomm) “It actually looks more exciting and far more fun than any American shows at the time, bandstand etc. No wonder Jack Good was whisked off to the USA.”
Dave Carter (2019YTcomm) “This show and Boy meets Girl were both superb shows. Both fore runners of Ready Steady Go of course.”
