The timeless nature of Georgie Fame's performing style was the perfect fit for The New Fangled Wandering Minstrel Show, a 1973 UK TV special that aimed to recapture the charm of a bygone era. Georgie starred alongside Olivia Newton-John in this musical review which originally aired on BBC1.
Written, produced and directed by Buddy Bregman, the show's "plot" concerned a troupe of minstrel performers travelling back in time to visit various historical sites, including the Vale of York, Castle Howard, and Fountains Abbey. With these beautiful settings as a backdrop, Georgie and Olivia performed If We Only Have Love, Yeh Yeh, Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow, All I Need Is You, and Scarborough Fair.
