John Denver BBC Show Featuring Roger Daltrey

Don't know if anybody have noticed this. I just found on BBC Genome that there was a JD show from 1973 featuring Roger Daltrey (of the Who) as the special guest.

We have the recording of 6 BBC JD shows from 1973. The first one features David Essex, the second guest is Hurricane Smith, the third Brenda Arnau, the fourth Paul Williams, the fifth Lulu and the sixth is Donovan. I thought that we've already got all, but none of them features Roger Daltrey.

Could it be that there's a 7th BBC show, as Roger didn't appear in any of those 6?

I have 5 of the 6 BBC shows that John did in 1973. I don't have #3. I've searched all over looking for it but I can't find it anywhere. Does anyone know where to find a copy of it?

Here is the response that I got from another John Denver Facebook Page.

Is it a radio show or TV show?

These shows were on TV. They were a variety show.
There would be artists singing songs and then there would be silly skits.
I never liked to skits but the music was great.

Dale, I know of the six T.V. shows, but not the seventh. I posted all of them here to share. That's why I asked!

Christine Moon Yes, it was part of the BBC series in spring 1973. I know one of them was not included in overseas repeats but can never recall which! I guess it may have been this one. The series was originally broadcast live.

Christine Moon is from GB. I would think that her explanation about not all of the shows making it to the USA is correct.

This is the first time I hear about a seventh show. I know that in 1990 a small TV channel called "Superchannel" screened five of the six shows (excluding the one with Brenda Arnau) in Europe. Never heard of one with Roger Daltrey.

My understanding is that Episode #3 was lost by the BBC.  Has anyone actually seen show #3, even in the UK, since the original showings in 1973?
