Welcome to the No. 73 Tribute Films Website!


We are Fans of the original 1980's hit Saturday morning tv show, that starred the likes of (Neil Buchanan) (Sandi Toksvig) (Kim Goody) (Andrea Arnold) 
(R.I.P Frank Sidebottom) also (Nadia De lemeny) (Jules and 'His pet rat') (Hamilton Dent) (Tessa) (David) and (Rob The Builder) too.

The original show was based around a busy house that would feature famous stars and musicians, not forgetting 'The Sandwich Quiz'.
The show ran for 8 series between 1982-1988. Look-in magazine featured comic strips and fact files, The famous red door originally had no big yellow balloon numbers just some small ones, towards the end of the series the gang moved into a saloon park where the show was Re-titled to 7T3.

As a fan (Ian Harding) I really enjoyed the Show as a child and wanted to bring back No. 73 in a tribute way, Writing scripts, Set Building, Directing, Filming. We all met through work, family and friends. The recordings had several locations, Theatre, street, home environment. Rehearsing was fun! full of laughter a great experience!! 

The Work for the Tributes started on the 3rd January 2010, all the way through to September 2011.
