The entire production under the personal supervision of Lupino Lane. Televised direct from Victoria Palace. This will be one of the big television occasions of the year — the first time that a musical comedy has been televised in its entirety from a theatre (Magyar Melody did not quite fall into this category), and incidentally the first time the television mobile unit has visited the Victoria Palace. Apart from the fact that Me and My Girl set the world doing the Lambeth Walk, this show, which has now been running for almost eighteen months, has a record number of laughs per minute
