Georgie Fame and Olivia Newton-John in The New Fangled Wandering Minstrel Show (1973)

Georgie Fame and Olivia Newton John

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.
