Terrible .....

This double act, Tommy Cannon and Bobby Ball came to the ITV screens during the summer of 1979. I believe Morecambe and Wise had finished by then or gone back to the BBC. The BBC also had the 2 Ronnies at the time so ITV needed something. They settled on Cannon and Ball. This was not a very good show and the catchphrase of 'Rock on Tommy' (I believe) was massively overused. This show cost ITV a huge amount to make and despite a large number of special guests, it only lasted a couple of years. This was one of the last shows of its type on ITV I'm pleased to say. Last thing I heard about Cannon and Ball was that they had found religion. Can still be seen occasionally on TV advertising furniture and carpets !!
