This website is a detailed research history project for one of the original TV talent shows. New Faces was welcomed onto our TV screen for six original series in the 1970s and was revived for three further series in the 1980s during which time future household names made their television debuts.
When complete there will be details of over 200 episodes and in excess of 1,000 acts from across all nine series, many with career updates and summaries. This will be the most comprehensive database of one of the greatest TV talent shows ever to come out of Birmingham.
If you were involved, performed, judged or were in the audience for any of the shows, I’d love to hear from you and if you’d like to share any memories, photos or even better still any archive footage that would be lovely too.
I hope you enjoy the trip down memory lane, as many have already done, and I hope you find the information gathered here interesting.
