Stars on Sunday

Anybody remember this show? It started with a dreary hymm, and was presented by Jess Yates.

'Stars On Sunday' was made by Yorkshire Television, was a religiously themed variety show, a sort of 'Sunday Night At The London Palladium' with hymn books.

The show consisted of religious songs performed by artistes dressed in formal evening wear in front of sets which were designed to look like the interior of a huge gloomy mansion. Occasionally a "garden" set was used, which was of course always seen at night.

As a kid, I found it to be rather surreal and creepy.

    Jess Yates had an idea to rival Songs of Praise,a mix of religion with light entertainment,examples like The Bachelors singing I'll Walk With God,Norman Wisdom singing a religious song,James Mason doing a bible reading and a 1000 voice choir to sing a closing hymn
