Juke Box Jury is a music panel show which originally ran on the BBC Television Service from 1 June 1959 until 27 December 1967. The programme was based on the American show Jukebox Jury, itself an offshoot of a long-running radio series.
Throughout its run the series featured celebrity show business guests on a rotating weekly panel judging the hit potential of recent releases. By 1962 the programme attracted 12 million viewers weekly on Saturday nights.
David Jacobs was host throughout the series 1959–1967, with Pete Murray standing in on a number of occasions. On the first show the panellists were Murray, singers Alma Cogan and Gary Miller, and TV presenter (Magpie and Paperplay) Susan Stranks.
The concept was later revived by the BBC for one series in 1979 and a further two series in 1989/1990. [Wikipedia]
