Is this a story of the history of the Shadows or a story of them celebrating a 60 year anniversary?

I'm no mathematician,  but The Shadows were formed in 1958,this year is 2020, and the intervening 62 years is not, erm, 60.

Maybe it doesn't include the earlier Drifters period in 58.

They became the Shadowsnin March 1959, which still adds up to more than 60 years.  I can only presume the programme is a repeat.

Yes, it was last shown in 1872.

Cool, I just programmed my TV box. Hopefully my grand-grandkids will enjoy it.

It's a repeat (but one I'm nevertheless going to watch).  The 60th Anniverswy tribute concert was in March 2019.

However, it is 60 years since Apache made number 1.

It was a very interesting programme.  I suspect that original red strat is worth a few quid today.
