Fifty six years ago an aficionado and practitioner of the Maxalding system appeared on a TV talent programme called Opportunity Knocks.

As I recall he appeared for six winning occasions.

His name may be familiar to some of the old timers amongst you -he was Tony Holland a supple ectomorph who did his posing routine to a catchy tune called ‘Wheels’ played by Billy Vaughn and his orchestra.

I met him at the Houldsworth Hall in the 1960s where he did his stuff accompanying the nail breaking and dumbbell lifting sideshows.

Thirty odd years later he appeared on the Terry Wogan Show in his mid 60s and performed the same routine.

Anyone who may be interested in seeing or re-seeing his act could GOOGLE ‘Youtube Tony Holland Wheels’ or similar.

Re the Terry Wogan Show; my Memory failed me -it was in 1987 so Tony would have been around 48.
