THE 1976 BBC SHOW # 5


Today the 5th. 1976 BBC show. Shirley’s songs: Sing, Jezahel, Good, Bad But Beautiful, As I Love You, The Way A Woman Loves, If I Never Sings Another Song, The Way We Were, Spinning Wheel, & The Party’s Over.
In this show was a song included (Sing) where Shirley had to sing on the back of a horse but the horse threw her off and she hurt her leg and was not able to walk for a few days. After the accident the director decided to take this particular scene out of the show. Below some newspaper articles about the mishap.

This great photo I got from the Dutch press-agency Kippa in Amsterdam. It must have been 1977 and I went to Amsterdam, which is from where I live about 220 km. I was told they sold pictures there of Shirley.
Once I got there, their policy had changed and they did not sell pictures anymore. They were very friendly though and showed me drawers full of Shirley pictures. I felt like a child in a candy-store.
In the end they felt sorry for me because of the long trip I had made and they decided I could buy one picture only. As you can imagine it was very difficult for me to choose but I chose this one!
