Cilla Black’s award-winning comedy plays of the 1970s will soon be released for the first time on DVD.

Britain’s chart-topping pop singer made her transition into television in 1968 with her very own BBC TV variety show “Cilla”. By the mid-1970s and after seven record breaking seasons at the Beeb, Cilla Black signed a new deal with production company ATV (Associated Television/ITV). The deal offered Cilla the chance to dip her toe into the world of situation comedy and her husband Bobby the position of Executive Producer.

Two series of comedy plays followed, Cilla’s Comedy Six (1975) and Cilla’s World Of Comedy (1976) in which Cilla portrayed a range of female roles from Mrs. Average Housewife (mid-’70s style) to a temp fending off the amorous advances of her latest boss, from a woman caring for her widowed father to a biology teacher who’s forced to take stock of her own life. The plays were notably directed by Les Chatfield (Coronation Street, Juliet Bravo, Duty Free) and co-starred many stars of the ’70s sitcom elite such as Keith Barron, Richard Wilson, Leslie Sands and Helen Frazer.
