Black and White Minstrel Show (Variety Show)
George Mitchell, Roy Gunson, Ernest Maxin - Australasian Tour 1973
The Black and White Minstrel Show was a British light entertainment show that ran on BBC television from 1958–1978 and was a popular stage show. It was a weekly light entertainment and variety show presenting traditional American minstrel and country songs, as well as show and music hall numbers, usually performed in blackface, and with lavish costumes. The show was created by George Mitchell.
By 1964, audiences were regularly exceeding 18 million. The Minstrels also had a theatrical show produced by Robert Luff which ran for 6,477 performances from 1960–1972 and established itself in The Guinness Book of Records as the stage show seen by the largest number of people. At this time, the creation gained considerable international kudos; in 1961 the show won a Golden Rose at Montreux for best light entertainment programme and the first three albums of songs (1960–1962) all did extremely well, the first two being long-running #1 albums in the UK Albums Chart. The first of these became the first album in UK album sales history to pass 100,000 sales.
