The Sunday afternoon serial's were a staple diet of TV viewing on BBC1 during the early 1970s and a great way of introducing younger viewers to stories they may not otherwise of thought twice about reading in a colour TV age.
Amongst the cast of this great series was Patricia Maynard, Joanna David, John Abineri, Richard Warwick and Philip Madoc.
Philip Madoc revealed in his one man monologue stage show, Dylan Thomas and Friends in 2009; that it was his portrayal of Indian Chief Magua that gained him a following with a real Indian tribe that subsequently formed a fan club in his honour.
Radio Comedy For February 21 1971
Back on Radio 2, at 2.1pm (1500m and VHF) there was an hour of comedy with Ken Dodd in The Ken Dodd Show featuring Peter Goodwright, Pat Coombs and Talfryn Thomas.
Talfryn Thomas was that famous Welsh actor who turned up in many radio and TV shows during this time and would find great acclaim as newspaper reporter Mr Cheeseman a few years later in Dad's Army.
Comedy Parade followed at 2.30pm with Les Dawson in a comedy vehicle entitled Our Les featuring Colin Edwynn and Joe Gladwin.
Comedy Parade featured many pilots for new comedy show ideas of the day, and if anyone has a recording of this show, I'd love to hear from you!
