    Panel: Val Doonican, Charlie Drake, Fenella Fielding, Twinkle


    Producer: Stewart Morris


    Records played:
    What In The World’s Come Over You – Rockin’ Berries (Piccadilly) HIT
    Come Tomorrow – Manfred Mann (HMV) HIT
    The Heart That You Break – Gitte (Columbia) MISS

    Neville Wortman: “The panel only heard what was played on the programme. We only played a minute of a record but if a record was rather unusual, we might choose something other than the beginning. The Righteous Brothers’ You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’ would be an example of that. You want to give the panel a real flavour of what the music is all about. It’s like being a good publisher – they can tell from the first few lines of an unsolicited manuscript if it is something they want.”

    Audience Research Report
    Audience was 22%, and 9% watching ITV
    Reaction index of 51 (average 54 for series)
    “Juke Box Jury appealed very much more to viewers under 20 but at the same time reaction to this particular edition was not unduly enthusiastic.”
    Teenagers thought that there were too many records of a type that would never make the charts. (Actually, untrue in this instance!)
    The teenagers had little time for anyone not of their generation or musical persuasion.
    The most popular personality was the one member who openly admitted her ignorance of pop music – Peggy Mount. Viewers admired her honesty and found her likeable and forthright.
    Pete Murray disliked for his “stupid fooling around” and “disastrous attempts at humour”.
    Dusty was criticised for her “inarticulate mumblings” and her “quite grotesque makeup”.
    David Healy didn’t make an impression either way.
    The majority found the ‘candid camera’ shots of the audience a most attractive feature.
