Tom O’Connor

Though he had appeared on Granada TV's Comedians series in 1971, the Merseyside-born comedian Tom O'Connor made his name on Opportunity Knocks in 1975, winning three separate editions. This propelled him to stardom as an entertainer, presenter and gameshow host. He had already hosted Wednesday at 8 for Thames in 1976 and he won his very own show in 1977. The theme music is suspiciously like David Nixon's old theme tune, so perhaps it was a generic Thames big-band showbiz number…?
