Muriel Young - Sixties City Cult Television Shows

The Sixties, if they must be labelled, were undoubtedly the decade of the sit-com. Many of the what are now considered to be comedy classics started life humbly as one-off features in the outstanding 'Comedy Playhouse' series and are still the subject of extremely popular re-runs nearly forty years later. A number of programmes originally produced in the Fifties were (and still are!) also continued enjoying regular broadcasting, particularly westerns and historical action series which made a significant enough impression on my own viewing memories of the Sixties to be included here. The change in the quality and quantity of programmes produced was quite pronounced with the introduction of colour television, higher resolution transmission and the increasing tendency of the regional independent television companies to produce their own programmes. Technological advances and improvements in the speed and ease of international travel brought the world into our living rooms as never before, particularly in the field of current events reporting.

These pages are now mainly completed with
listings, pictures, website links and information on hundreds of 60s television programmes. I will revisit these pages and make additions from time to time as there are already a long list of programmes which I have come across which have brought back even more memories. Domestic UK-produced programmes and series are listed by year first transmitted. Imported programmes are a little more difficult to verify so, where I haven't got specific information I have listed them as shown in the U.K. two years after first transmission in the country of origin, which seems to be about right.

There is also a Pre-60s page on various programmes that were either made or first shown in the Fifties (now including 'Swashbucklers'!) which were still popular and widely televised in the Sixties ( in many cases still being shown today ). I consider these to be very much a part of the Sixties television scene
as they certainly form a significant part of my own Sixties memories, hence their inclusion here. As always, I have tried to give accurate information but this is often difficult to verify.
If I get it wrong, I'm sure that I can always rely on you to let me know. This is such a broad subject that it is difficult to know where to stop, especially as there are so many excellent web sites which specialise on television programmes.

Let me know your own favourites and also of any programmes which may have slipped my memory.
As is my intention throughout Sixties City, I hope these bring back some good memories for you.
