Russell Harty Plus (2)
Educated at Oxford and with a first class degree in English Literature, Russell Harty was a teacher before breaking into TV in 1970. Aged 36, he joined LWT's arts magazine Aquarius and grew famous for his quirky reports. Later he was given his own chat show, which ran from 1973-1981. Russell Harty Plus was notable during its first few years for incorporating LWT's ident into its opening titles, as can be seen in the first clip. These excerpts date from 1974 and 1976: Gordon Jackson and Angela Baddeley, stars of the hit drama Upstairs Downstairs.
