Who were Pan's People?


This is a guide to who the members of Pan's People were and is intended to help you identify and name them.

Pan's People were a sextet formed in 1966 by Flick Colby, Babs Lord and Dee Dee Wilde, 5 were previously members of the Beat Girls dance troupe (that originated on BBC2's The Beat Room). They made several TV appearances throughout Europe in the next two years. In 1968 Dee Dee and Ruth were invited to dance on TOTPs following a successful audition, this then led to the entire troupe being used. They continued to make occasional guest appearances until 1970 when, because of their popularity, they were made a regular part of the show. They continued, with the occasional personnel change until April 1976 when the last of the pre TOTP members retired and it was decided to bring the troupe to an end. Dee Dee continued to use the name for a few years for her troupe of dancers and they made the occasional TV appearance in this guise.
