Editor’s note: References to “ABC” on this page refer to the Associated Broadcasting Company Ltd, who changed name to Associated TeleVision Ltd (ATV) during October 1955 when faced with legal action by Associated British Cinemas, who would shortly launch the entirely separate midlands and northern ITV company ABC Weekend TV.
