Typos can irritate, but these are amusing "Graham Chapmn an" "because no-one in Britain" "an acot and a writer" smiley - ok

The David Frost introduction was lost, but more than an hour's worth of material has survived in NTSC format, is that right?

Excellent linkage smiley - ok

In that case I hope you don't find the fact I tweaked those spelling errors too irritating smiley - winkeye

And yes, more than an hour's worth of material has survived but less than an hour was broadcast (what with opening & closing credits, David Frost's introduction and gaps for adverts) but no record of what was omitted is known to survive.

Irritatingly, I'm doing another quick readthrough smiley - winkeye Just one more thing to look at: "By knowing many of the writers and performers there had utilised their talents to become one of the most successful television hosts in the world." - something missing.

That makes sense about the broadcast copy being lost, but the copies of the individual sketches having survived smiley - ok

Thanks for reading through again - I've tweaked that sentence so hopefully it makes more sense.
