The BP Super Show (1959-1970)

The BP Super Show was an Australian television series of loosely scheduled TV specials often of the variety show genre. It originally aired on ATN-7 in Sydney and GTV-9 in Melbourne, with the production of episodes varying between the two stations, and it also aired on other stations across Australia. It aired on the Nine Network after the formation of that network. Given the varied nature of the episodes, critical reception varied, but was often very positive, with a 1961 episode with Ella Fitzgerald being called by the Age newspaper "one of the best shows of its type presented on Melbourne TV"
