  • Notes

    • Technological Breakthrough: This edition coincided with the first stereo broadcast of BBC Radio 1 on it's new FM frequency. To mark the occasion Radio 1 simulcast the sound for this show enabling viewers with suitable radio sets to hear the entire broadcast in stereo. This therefore would make this the first UK television broadcast ever made available in stereo 5 years before 'Nicam' Stereo was launched.
