On the Saturday 25th May and Sunday 26th May I am proposing that we shall have a weekend challenge. This will be for pictures of Dancers that did not appear on Top Of The Pops.
The pictures should be for any dancers who appeared on television from 1960 up to 2000. It can be for both male and female dancers, and either of the subject singly or in a group with their companions from that troupe. Naturally, given the base of the Forum, it is expected that most of the pictures will be from British Television, but the challenge is open for dancers worldwide, from any country or Television Network. Please name the dancer or group, if known. The only exception to the non-Top Of The Pops condition will be for The Gojos, as only one piece is known to exist of them on the show, and their faces were covered by hoods, making them difficult to identify. I hope that this will be of interest to the Forum.
The postings should begin early on Saturday Morning, and continue up to Midnight on Sunday. You may post as many pictures as you like of each person or group. But no doubles, and if you have posted you must wait until after someone else has posted, to do so again. Unless there has been no uploads for half an hour on the thread, to account for quiet times and during the night.
This is the first time I have tried something like this, having been given the idea from previous weekend challenges by others. I hope it is successful. There are no prizes for the best collection of pictures, only the satisfaction that we will all have seen some of your favourites.
In a picture of a team of dancers, it may be difficult to know if one member did not also appear in Zoo, for example. I think it is possible to allow such uncertainties.
I WILL OPEN THE CHALLENGE SOON AFTER MIDNIGHT ON SATURDAY 25th MAY- IF I AM AWAKE THEN OR FIT ENOUGH TO REMEMBER. IF NOT LATER IN THE MORNING.
*If the copyright mark is a problem for the second picture I will change it.
Great idea, Hanway. But...Wei Wei Wong dead! I had no idea. Remember her well as she often used to crop up on 70s TV, and, of course, there was that memorable appearance in The Man With The Golden Gun.
Anyway, on a happier note, here's Donna Fielding dressed, as she so often was, as a schoolgirl.
