Pan's People in Concert (1974)

Various dance routines and musical numbers performed by Britain's most popular dancing troupe and choreographed by former member Flick Colby.

Between 1970 and 1976 this BBC2 programme showcased top class musical acts in what was the ‘MTV Unplugged’ of its day. Elton John, Cliff Richard, David Essex and The Kinks all appeared at one time or another. On 17 April 1974, viewers were treated to 35 minutes of non-stop Pan’s People, including an infamous set with Louise and Dee Dee dancing on cushions wearing very little indeed. This routine is shown today on virtually all Pan’s People retrospectives. In a 1994 documentary Louise said that these skimpy little outfits were actually one of the most expensive costumes ever made for the group.
