I think he does but I believe very little apart from a few snippets still exists from before the show’s return in 1979. As for The Daryl & Ossie Show, Wikipedia says his production company made the show but I think it was actually a Reg Grundy production. Whether Somers owns the footage or it’s now under Fremantle Media, I’ve no idea.
I was just watching some old Hey Hey clips from their official YouTube channel, and all of a sudden, the channel page became a broken link. I went back to my watch history to find some of the videos I had just watched, and it said they had all been privatised…
The (very) last episode of Hey Hey airing in 2010. When the show ended there was an auction merchandise from the show with HHIS not included in 9’s 2011 upfronts. Fittingly this very episode was also the last to be filmed at Studio Nine
According to the information I can find, “Gonged But Not Forgotten” was a series of eight half hour specials hosted by Peter Rowsthorn which originally aired on Nine at 8.30pm Mondays over the Summer non-ratings period of 1999/2000.
I’d guess that these may have been shown to fulfill some sort of contractual obligation between Nine & Somers Carroll following the axing of Hey Hey It’s Saturday. Airdate wise…
