Another Forgotten Favourite

Did it only run for 3 years?

Five O'Clock Club (da-daa-da-da) was a young kids' staple in the mid to early 1960's. Starting at a time in the evening when kids would just be home from school, it proved to be immensely popular as a more laid-back alternative to 'Crackerjack'. Ollie and Fred were a pair of glove-puppet characters who - more or less - compered a show of mixed light entertainment. It pulled a surprising guest-list for such an early evening kids show. Often it presented a last chance for declining careers or gave a little boost to those in need. Freddie & The Dreamers once guested, as did (I think) Mark Bolan. The format of puppet hosts was almost certainly established by this programme.

Quite amazing that nobody spares it a thought, now. Five O'Clock Club was an absolute must-see in its day.
