Back to "The Henry McGee Connection" : Television


Television:  It's Tarbuck! (1964)


Interesting McGee Facts 

Neat places to Visit

"It's Tarbuck!" (Produced by ATV) was Jimmy Tarbuck's first television series of his own (he came to fame a year earlier after an appearance on Val Parnell's Sunday Night at the London Paladium". The show consisted of Jimmy doing his standup routines and supplemented with comedy sketches assisted by a supporting cast. Henry McGee was a member of that supporting cast along with Amanda Barrie, Ronnie Corbett and Bob Todd.

The title was revived for two more series in 1970 and 1973, with the same format, but sadly no McGee content.
