Does anyone here know if Tommy Cooper was being broadcast to the whole nation the night that he collapsed on stage and eventually died, or just in the London area?
The show he was on (Live from Her Majesty's) was being broadcast by LWT, who were the ITV franchise holder for Greater London and the Home Counties. However I've read conflicting things about whether it was just being shown in that area or not.
Me Dad has always claimed he watched it Live on the night from his home in Liverpool, but I was always under the impression that this would've been impossible. A few things I've read however make reference to his death being broadcast 'nationwide' or on 'full ITV' (like this blog I stumbled upon).
Can any of the telly/comedy bods on here clear it up?
