Bruce Forsyth’s Big Night

Michael Grade head-hunted Brucie from the BBC's Generation Game to front this two-hour chunk of Saturday night ITV. Big names were booked, including Bette Midler and Elton John, and The Glums was revived with Jimmy Edwards and Ian Lavender, but critics didn't like it and soon stuck the knife in. Probably because of all those repugnant dance numbers. This first edition includes a song written by Bruce, in which he extols the virtues of the ITV Network!
