Exists but the rights get in the way

This series was a landmark in British tv as it was the first variety show made on colour video tape and features fantastic groups and artists at their prime in fabulous vibrant colour performing in a replica circus backdrop. The Zombies. Dusty Springfield, Woody Allen, Liz's Minnelli, Freddie and the dreamers, Nancy Sinatra and the Dave Clark five are just some of the talent involved- Most of the shows exist but unfortunately the clearance costs make it expensive to release - Their was an attempt a few years ago to release it but it ended up with just the circus performers clips being on the DVD. A series crying out for a release.
