July 30th, 1969: I knew there was something wrong yesterday. I could feel it in my primitive Welsh bones. E had gone into surgery for her piles, and the first word I had was from her doctor, who made it blatantly clear that my baby child had nearly kicked it. Some doctor-idiot had allowed the ‘shot’ to leak into her blood stream and the fools were standing by with heart shots etc. in case she started to die, which they feared she was actually doing.
I’m still nightmared. What could life possibly be without her? Where would I go? What would I do? Everybody else pales by comparison. It’s no use picking up a mini-skirted chick of 18 — she wouldn’t last a week, if that.
I’d die, I suppose, a greatly accelerated death. Anyway, she’s all right. Bastards.
Richard Burton’s diary
The Julie Andrews Hour was a television variety series produced by ATV and distributed by ITC Entertainment. It aired on the ABC network in the United States. In order to secure Andrews for the series, Sir Lew Grade and ABC offered her an extremely lucrative contract.
The show premiered on ABC Wednesday, September 13, 1972 at 10 P.M. ET to rave reviews. Unfortunately, all the time slots attempted proved to be daunting in terms of ratings competition and “The Julie Andrews Hour” was finally canceled by ABC after its 24th episode in April, 1973.
The show went on to win seven Emmy Awards in 1973, (out of eight nominations) including the Outstanding Variety Musical Series award.
As a consolation for all the awards her show received, ABC offered Andrews five variety specials which were produced in England also under the auspices of Lew Grade between 1973 and 1975. In the late 1970s and early 1980s, several edited episodes of The Julie Andrews Hour were shown on syndicated stations throughout the United States as “specials.” (Wikipedia)
