Michael Craig continues the stories of the men who create the world of entertainment.
This week Harold Davlson : I felt that as I was doing rather successful and, hopefully, entertaining shows, people would associate my name with them, and that ultimately the public would accept the fact that if a Davison show was presenting an unknown artist they would go alonq with me, knowing my shows were of a special type - therefore I could launch new and fresh talent rather than having to rely constantly on known names. It wasn't just an ego thing, it was a long-term planned policy. Jack Jones :
Harold is thorough and meticulous - he cares, he's not just interested in making money - he enjoys bringing talent to Great Britain no matter where it's from, and he will always be loyal to that person. He's probably one of the most trusted men in our business. and Tony Blackburn
