While Sifting For Fast Tap Dancers
I've always loved dance, I remembered Roy Castle who hosted the Guiness Record Breakers show in the UK, a talented chap, he made a few world records... ( though at the time I thought he was mediochre )

This I didn't know...

Throughout his adult life Roy Castle suffered from agoraphobia. For the greater part of his career as an entertainer he was unhindered by the condition - but his role as the main presenter of Record Breakers proved challenging at times. Unfortunately for Roy, many of the multi-person record-breaking attempts were recorded in the vast BBC TC1 studio at Television Centre. At 995 square metres (10,250 ft²), TC1 is one of the largest television studios in Europe. The prospect of several hundred hula-hooping schoolgirls or bagpiping soldiers inside a large studio would cause Roy great anxiety. However, he prided himself on being a professional entertainer and he improvised many novel ways of managing his condition. For example, when filming in TC1 he would arrange with the producer to have a large wicker laundry basket placed out of camera shot, into which he would dive to take refuge from his panic attacks. His co-host Cheryl Baker would often sit on the basket, thus providing Roy with the comforting knowledge that the lid could not be accidentally removed.

Here he is with Michael Parkinson, Kenny Everett, Buddy Rich & Sammy Davis Jnr. - who'da thought?

If you love Kenny - Brother Lee Love!

Here's Kenny bringing in 70's pop band Sparks - who killed!

Someday man should learn how to enjoy liberty without license, nourishment without gluttony, and pleasure without debauchery. Self-control is a better human policy of behavior regulation than is extreme self-denial.
