Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Six of the Best was a British TV anthology, consisting of pilot episodes for proposed series. Evidently none of these six pilots were the best, since none graduated to weekly status. The program was launched on August 11, 1965 with something called "Annie Doesn't Live Here Anymore." Subsequent entries included "Me and My Big Mouth" with Alfie Bass and Peter Bowles (August 18); "Charlie's Place" with Ray Brooks, Yootha Joyce, John Junkin, and Helen Fraser (August 25); "Porterhouse-Private Eye," with Peter Butterworth (September 1); "Man With a Mission" with Ronald Lacey and Thorley Walters (September 8); and "Are There Any More at Home Like You?" (September 15) with Barbara Mitchell (in a dual role) and Graham Stark (the final telecast, September 15, 1965). Six of the Best was telecast by ATV.
