I'm sorry to learn of Barbara Kelly's death. She was the last survivor from the original series of What's My Line. Even at a tender age I thought she was very sexy, so it came as a shock to learn that, at the time of her death, she was 82.

Ian.

I preferred the posh one! Lady Isobel Barnett!! she was very attractive.
I used to like that show, good family entertainment.
I have a very vague memory of one show where they did a "colour" television experiment??
I seem to remember the camera focusing on the Lady's necklass and Eamomn Andrews excitedly asked if the viewers could see the colours of the gems! red and green I think.
May have been an Aprils fools trick or something but I'm sure it happened.

Dotto - another good show...

Sorry to hear about her passing away. She and Bernard Braden were a very popular and really entertaining couple in the 50's and early 60's. I remember thinking how glamourous she was - always wore very chic clothes. Didn't Bernard front the Watchdog style programme which gave Esther Ranzen her start on tv?

I echo that. I always preferred Barbara to Isobel Barnet on What's My Line? (IB was probably too close to mother/grandmother who I thought of as far too strict at the time. Barbara was more modern and had flair.) Daughter Kim was gorgeous also - remember her in Anne of Green Gables/Avonlea on BBC-tv in the 70s.

Bernard had a wonderful sense of humour, quite satirical (before even David Frost's TWTWTW time); he did do the forerunner to That's Life and Watchdog, called On The Braden Beat, if memory serves - he fell out with the BBC over outside advertising (he did the one for Campbell's Soup, but I'm not sure that was the contentious one) and Esther Rantzen got her chance.

Ah yes! Now you've mentioned it I do remember Kim Braden as Anne. She was good wasn't she? I wonder whatever happened to her.
