Priceless theatrical reminiscences
9 June 2009 | by simon_acorsSee all my reviews

Well, it's a cliché I know, but they don't make TV like this anymore. It makes me quite melancholy just to think about this show now, just as watching it at the time used to. There is great joy and laughter in the anecdotes that grace "Looks Familiar", but the warm nostalgia was inevitably tinged with a sense of loss; these were invariably performers in the Autumn of their careers, chatting about a showbiz world that had passed into history; a world killed-off by the very medium they were appearing on, television.

Dennis Norden was an excellent host. Gently cynical about the contemporary world, he prompted the three regular guests for stories from their theatrical careers, whilst at the same time contributing gems from his own vast knowledge of music hall, popular music, variety and cinema. It suffered from often being shoved into a daytime slot (deemed fit for viewing only by the retired I guess) though it did get moved about a bit, and got an occasional wider airing. So even in the 1970's the subject wasn't quite getting the recognition it deserved - so much had the world moved on.

Such theatrical riches! We had such riches!
