This is a Youtube rip of the ABC show Dig We Must (originally titled It’s a Gas) the show was hosted by the extemely popular duo Bobby and Laurie and ran for only a few months before it was cancelled. The show usually ran for half an hour this show was special and ran for an hour and was possibly the last show.
This December special is the only known episode of the show believed to exist the show achieved quite high
ratings so is a bit of a mystery as to why it was cancelled.
The show has some very well known acts and some not so well known with some of the well known acts
performing songs not recorded by them which I found very interesting. Anyone who has not seen the show It's worth a trip over to Youtube to watch the whole 18 episodes.
