Dee Time

Episode 4.07
Aug. 24, 1968

Rod Taylor appeared with Zsa Zsa Gabor on this popular British chat show hosted by Simon Dee. Lynn Redgrave was another guest.

"Dee Time" was immensely popular during its 1967-69 run on the BBC. Dee's obituary notes that "anyone who was anybody wanted to appear in the programme."

Only a very short clip of Rod's appearance on the show exists, and Rod is barely in the frame. (View it here.) In it, Simon Dee tells Zsa Zsa how he has always wanted to meet her, and she replies likewise, commenting on how handsome he is. Taylor then says, "Welcome to the Zsa Zsa Gabor show!"

Rod and Zsa Zsa were in London for the premiere of "Nobody Runs Forever" (aka "The High Commissioner"), which was held the day before this episode aired.

Episode 4.23
Dec. 30, 1968

Rod and Zsa Zsa appeared on a year-end episode of "Dee Time," which possibly included taped highlights from previous episodes throughout the year. Other guests on this date were Lord Arran and Richard Harris.
