I looked through the list and I noticed two programmes which might not be missing.
The first one is “Liverpool A Go-Go”. A documentary film of this name was made in 1965 for ABC TV in the USA. I suspect that this is what Grampian broadcast on 05 August 1966. If I’m correct, then this was the only time this film was shown on British TV. The documentary was presented by Cavern DJ Bob Wooler and featured several Liverpool groups including the Fourmost, the Spinners, the Hideaways and the Clayton Squares. It’s available to view on the BFI Player and YouTube.
The second programme is “Melanie”. This was a 30-minute documentary shown in the Granada region only on 05 August 1969 (it was repeated on 16 September 1969.) This programme exists and I watched it on YouTube a few months ago.
However, Melanie Safka also appeared in another British programme called “Melanie”. This was a 10-minute programme broadcast on BBC-2 on 8 May 1971. This programme is missing.
Thanks Mark, I've put an asterix against Number 55 Liverpool a Go Go to indicate it may exist thanks.
