Lucy in London

Lucy in London

(featuring Dave Clark Five)

Lucy TV Specials

Lucy Carmichael wins a free trip to London after writing a jingle for a dog food campaign.

After landing in London, Lucille's tour guide, Anthony Newley, talks Lucy into dropping her list of standard sights to see and to put herself in his hands. He takes her around in his motorcycle and sidecar, and she gets a whirlwind peek at London.

Special Notes: This was based on an episode of The Lucy Show called "Lucy Goes To London," which aired on October 17, 1966. It is considered as a continuation of that episode as an hour-long special.

This was the first time Desilu filmed in a foreign location, paving the way for other shows to follow. The first choice for filming was in Paris but was later changed to London.

The song, "Lucy in London", written by Phil Spector and performed by The Dave Clark Five, is presented as a vertable music video with Lucy in a long red wig and wearing the latest in mod fashions.
