    name='aphra']So many fans, so few can spell... Sorry, but once a sub-editor, always a sub-editor!


    Not complaining but would ask for a little tolerance here re spelling. Some people just may have a Neurological disability which can affect things such as keyboard or the ability to process words. I myself suffer from Complex Epilepsy and know just how it feels when someone points out �EE you can�t spell�. I would not wish my own complaint on anyone and I expect others who have medical problems might just say the same.

    Thanks.

    Does anyone have the 1959 TV Show ATLANTIC SHOWBOAT: http://tinyurl.com/lm5wab



    Saturday Spectacular: The Atlantic Showboat (ATV 1959) Hughie Green hosts this variety show onboard the new pleasure-cruiser "The Empress Of Britain" as she sails from Liverpool via Scotland to Montreal. On board to entertain us are guests George Formby, Shirley Bassey, David Whitfield, Duke Ellington, Lionel Blair and Jackie Rae. Broadcast on ITV on 10th January 1959.



    I have George's 1957 TV Show TOP OF THE BILL: BFI | Film & TV Database | TOP OF THE BILL[05/10/57] (1957) plus a few more of his rare appearances, but I'd really like to see Atlantic Showboat (I know that this programme definitely survives). Many thanks.

    The Formby clip was, I think, shown at the NFT's Missing Believed Wiped a few years ago. Can't remember whether it was something the BFI owned though,
