Opportunity Knocks (ITV Mon 3 Jan 1972, Bobby Kimber)



Opportunity Knocks ITV Hughie Green

In the first edition of 1972 Hughie Green is once again on hand to introduce the acts hoping to make the big time. One of the acts, ventriloquist Bobby Kimber, had been in variety for 15 years. Scots singer Haggarty had appeared on Hughie Green’s quiz show The Sky’s The Limit as a contestant – Green had liked her so much he allowed her on this show too!

Other acts taking part included Malcolm Messiter, Nancy Brown Irish Dancers, and Linda and the Statesman.

Musical backing was provided by Bob Sharples and his orchestra.
