Producer Neville Wortman: “I used to see the guests first to make sure that they had an interest in music per se. If they didn’t, there was no point in having them on the panel at all. I remember Rupert Davies brought a different slant on it. We were always trying to cater for the largest possible audience and not just a teenage audience. The audience for Thank Your Lucky Stars was mostly teenagers. The BBC has mostly broadcast programmes for the family.”
