The magical tale was directed by Gillian Lynne with sets and costumes by Tony Walton. The show was presented by David Frost and starred a young Tim Curry (pre ‘Rocky Horror Show’). Songs from the score were issued on an album by The Mike Sammes singers, released here on CD for the first time but the showstopper ‘Make Your Own Rainbow’ was omitted from the recording session. The song later went on to win The Danny Kaye Award at the UNICEF International Song Contest in 1988, with the version featured here performed by Tara McDonald.
