Jonathan Ross, made sure that these interviews were not too serious! His personality as an interviewer coupled with his sense of humour, relaxed his guests and provided us with very good TV moments. We still remember him singing "It's not unusual" with Tom Jones, presentingÊ his show in a Startrek outfit or exposing himself to a knife thrower!

TVAM in politics and gymnastics

The interviews with politicians included in TVAM offer a large view of the politics issues, mainly in the UK but not only. Margaret Thatcher appears a large number of times, some of the interviews being host by Sir David Frost. You can also pick up key players of today in their early career and some who had some experience already. After our celebrities from Channel X, here is another list of names which will tell you more about the contents: Tony Blair, Paul Boateng, Virginia Bottomley, Sir Rhodes Boyson, Kenneth Carlisle, Lynda Chalker, Anne Clwyd, Stephen Dorrell, Tim Eggar, Fianna Fail, Mark Fisher, Padraig Flynn, Roger Freeman, Archie Hamilton, Harriet Harman, Ted Heath, Charles Kennedy, Lord Henley, Robert Jackson,Ê Ken Livingstone, John Maples, Francis Maude, David Mellor, Colin Moyhihan, John Patten, Michael Portillo, George Robertson, Angela Rumbold, Algirdas Saudargas, Barry Sheerman, Gillian Shepherd, Clive Soley, Jack Straw, Sir Ian Wrigglesworth, Sir George Young and others.Ê

TVAM studios also welcomed many international players like Janis Jurkeins, Benjamin Netanyahu, Yitzhak Rabin and Petre Roman.

We also would like to remind you of the lovelyÊ Lizzie Webb and her exercise workouts, a vital part of the TVAM programme. At approximately 7:00 in the morning, Lizzie practised her collection of exercises designed to keep fit. Some of her most famous guests included Take That (with Robbie Williams), Ken Livingstone (now Mayor of London), Jeffrey Archer (Ex MP and writer), David Mellor, the Chelsea football team, Frank Bruno (BoxingÊ champion), Barbara Windsor, Jimmy Greaves, Gary & Paul Glitter, Ema Forbes and many others. Lizzie also "entertained" policemen, British Airways hostesses, traffic wardens, nurses, doctors, the Royal Ballet

If they were famous or interesting they probably appeared on TVAM between 1983 and1992.

Beach Boys' footage

Can you name all the Beach Boys?Ê Brian Wilson and Mike Love might not roll off the tongue like Lennon and McCartney but the Beach Boys are one of the few bands to not only keep their heads above the mid60's Beatlemania but produce albums that occupied the turntables of an entire generation.Ê The beach boyÕs distinctive arrangements, flowing harmonies and feverishly focused production sessions became a musical statement in itself.

Moving Image now offers over 10 hours of never seen before Beach Boy's footage.Ê Shot on 16mm the footage includes production rehearsals, backstage fooling around, and stage performances as one cameraman follows the band on an international tour.

Moving Image is happy to present a glimpse into one of the greatest rock'n'roll bands of the 20th century and wish you 'Good Vibrations'.
