Welcome to the Rock Follies

The Little Ladies
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. There were also rumours of a remake but again it never materialised. Perhaps if enough interest is shown the powers that be can be persuaded that Rock Follies belongs on British screens again. In the meantime the complete series is now available on DV

"The Real Rock Follies - The Great Girl and Rip-off of 1976"
The full story of one of the disputes that rocked Rock Follies. Three actresses formed the all girl group "Rock Bottom" and developed an idea for a TV series based on the group and their lives. But instead of the series staring "Rock Bottom", Thames TV took the idea and made their own version - Rock Follies. For Rock Follies the rest was history. For Rock Bottom it was a very painful lesson in hope and trust but instead of quietly accepting they fought back. This is the story of that fight.
