    The event was held on 12 December 1967.

    "actor Harry H. Corbett and Sooty" - despite what the commentator says it's actually Harry Corbett and Sooty. (Harry H Corbett was somebody totally different, famous for his role in Steptoe and son").

    "Tommy Cooper lifting two glamorous showgirls" - they are Olga Linden and Donna Reading.

    Thanks - we've added those showgirls. Can anyone confirm who Harry Corbett is?

    Attached is a piece about Harry H Corbett. The second paragraph explains the reason for him using the "H" initial......


    And for confirmation of the difference, here's a piccy of Harry Corbett.....

    I've highlighted a similar "Corbett" mix-up in clip 1759.03.
