    Can it be explained why this 1968 film isnt listed in this weeks 'Films on TV' section of the list as it warrants a mention. I rely on this topic to warn me in advance ,but I just happened to notice this film on this Friday.

    May I bore you with a piece of trivia?

    O.K. - thanks.

    The song 'Mrs. Brown,You've got a lovely Daughter' - a 1965 American No.1 for Herman's Hermits,was written by Trevor Peacock,Jim in 'The Vicar of Dibley'.No,No,No,No..........YES!

    Anyone familiar with Manchester will marvel as to how it has changed in the intervening years...

    Some more 'Trev'-triv fer ya.......sorry 'bout that



    In the early days of tv Pop there was a ground-breaking show on BBC called '6.5 Special', the scripts and occasional songs for which were written by Trevor who also became a presenter on the show. When Jack Good left the Beeb after the millionth argument he went straight to ITV and started up a rival show called 'Oh Boy!' with scripts and occasional songs once again written by Trevor.

    Jack and Trevor had also done a comedy double act at London's Windmill Theatre.....I know, but it's true!

    Spencer Leigh, from Merseyside, one of the UK's most knowledgable music journalists, has written a wonderful, and no stone unturned, article describing the background saga of '6.5 Special'. It's on his website at http://www.spencerleigh.demon.co.uk/Sixfivespecial.htm



    Trevor later went on to do some musical collaborations as lyricist with John Barry including a musical called 'Passion Flower Hotel'.



    He also wrote a top five hit for Joe Brown in '63, 'That's What Love Will Do'.



    All this plus being a playright, tv and stage actor and a well respected member of the RSC.

    I doff my cap to him...

    It was certainly a book, I remember it well from my teenage years. (Yes, it's that old!) I remember reading that there had been a stage production of it, but I hadn't heard of a film. Hmmm, wouldn't mind seeing it if there was one.

    The theme song was written by Trevor Peacock who played Jim Trott (No, no, no, no...) in The Vicar Of Dibley.
