The irony of a rabid Southampton supporter as I 'finding' this is not lost on me....
Years before Ozzy-Osbourne lookalike Judith Chalmers presented a similar show, there was a show called Wish You Were Here on the BBC.
""August 12th 1958 - The Portsmouth Rose and Thistle Pipe Band play on South Parade Pier. The BBC TV programme "Wish you were here" is broadcast from the South Parade Pier.

This is NOT the same film as the Children's Newsreel in the Beeb's archive.
I understand that Wish You Were Here was not a regional show. BBCMG doesn't have this. So....as not a BBC South Show and not in the Beeb's archives....I'd call this a """find""" (I know the 'controversy' on this subject....this is not the point of it....I'm just drawing the attention to another piece of history floating about, possibly forgotten.)
I know it's mute....I know it's low interest, but....it's a survivor....and worth you noting....

This is either quite a significant find or doodlysquat, historically. (I am kind of tempted to say 'as usual', haha).
On lostshows.com, 'existence unknown' often means 'details to be added', so I am not saying this is DEFINITELY a find yet, but "Travellers Tales" (1956-1968) is meant to be 'existence unknown'.
I have found an episode, and some unedited footage in the NFSA, Australia....

The BFI do not appear to have this one so I am delighted (as it's 1955 and Rediffusion) to mention this.
