This site is dedicated to the Thames Television show from the 70's. The show followed the fortunes of 'The Little Ladies' , Dee (Julie Covington), Anna (Charlotte Cornwell) and Q (Rula Lenska), through the ruthless world of the music business with all its ups and downs. Rock Follies was devised and written by Howard Schuman who also wrote the lyrics for the songs in the show. The music was written by Andy Mackay of Roxy Music fame. The series has never been repeated in Britain though there were rumours that it would be shown again at the end of 1998 - it never happened though it was shown in Australia in 1999 and again in 2000. Perhaps if enough interest is shown the powers that be can be persuaded that Rock Follies belongs on British screens again. In the meantime I hope you enjoy this site.
Rock Follies Series 1 was released on June 24th on 2 disc DVD and 2 video sets. The releases includes interviews with Howard Schuman and Andy MacKay. Series 2 was released on August 19th.
These items are available at other online stores and high street outlets. The cheapest I've heard of is play.com . The DVD's are Region 0 but both the DVD's and Videos are in PAL format. Please make sure you have the right equipment to view them.
Message From Howard Schuman to The Rock Follies Website
Thank you and all the RF fans for writing to Freemantle and making it possible for the release of the DVD. The company will decide on the release of the 2nd series on the basis of how well the first one sells. So if people can really talk it up among their friends, that will ensure the planned 2nd series disk!
