The ‘Golden Oldie Picture Show’, was an entertainment series presented and linked by Radio 1 D.J., Dave Lee Travis between 1985-88. Guest directors would shoot music videos for past hits, which had never had videos made. It was their chance to interpret a song visually in whatever way they wanted.
These photos are from the video for ‘Sweet’s’ 1973 hit song ‘Little Willy’. It was recorded in Stratford Upon Avon. The cameraman is Jim Knights – shown in the photos. The make up artist checking the tramp is Val Ackrill.
