“The One Place For Me (1993)”THE ABOMINABLE SHOWMAN - I stayed on to write and perform the music for this show by Tim Shields, about the life of Phileas Barnum.

Listen to Dave & Bernard sing “Gower Wassail”GRANADA ROADSHOW – This was the first incarnation of a programme with this name. One was filmed on a pier at Blackpool when we sang a sea song, and I had a stuffed parrot on my shoulder.
