Episode of Oh Boy! on 16mm film discovered, to be screened at BFI, London

Chris Perry of Kaleidoscope, the company who specialise in lost TV shows, has recently announced the discovery of an episode of Oh Boy! on 16mm film.

This is important news for Barry fans as it features a performance of "Farrago" by the John Barry Seven, and, as such, is their earliest TV appearance known to exist on film.

It also features the TV debuts of three members who had recently joined the group: Dougie Wright, Dennis King & Vic Flick.
