Wilson Keppel and Betty

Who remembers them?

I have a 1 minute clip recorded from TV UK History. But they must have done more than this surely?

I have tried BBC, Amazon and Google. No info on BBC or Amazon but Google has a lot of info but no video clips

Does anyone know where there might be some Video clips please?

Perhaps a trawl through the British Museum and National film/sound achives?

It is a long time ago so my memory may be distorted......

During Nat. Service, I saw them in a Bournemouth theatre (1952).
My only memory is one of continuous laughter as these three mimed their way about on stage dressed in a one piece fawn elongated vest outfit and a fez on top. Perhaps Betty wore less.

A shame that so little of them remains, perhaps because the music hall was already dying, and they really only had this Egyptian dance in their act.

There's a clip on YouTube at click here

Thanks Jim Thing. That's a bit different to the one I have.

Also I have always understood that Betty (and there were many of them) didn't actually do anything except "look on". In that clip she appears to be doing a little dancing.

I have a friend who is a radio producer for BBC Manchester. He doesn't have much to do with TV but I have emailed him to see if he can search their archives.

I saw you using tongue on a mutton day...... where's me washboard...........

Jim Thing, I didn't give you the credit you deserve. I failed to see all the related clips on the right side of the screen. Just looked at those and there are quite a few more.

Thanks again.

Are these all silent ?...or have I gone deaf !!
Surely there's a piano playing somewhere ?
There aren't many of us left who remember these.

  pj123 19:01 01 Apr 2007

Kalb, no not silent. All have full sound, otherwise they wouldn't be worth watching.
