    Only one sketch from among the three black-and-white shows of 1970-71 has ever been shown in U.S. syndication, albeit in sepia tone: the "Love Will Find a Way" sketch from the 27 January 1971 telecast (episode 2.3), with Hill as a penniless actor, Lesley Goldie as an actress whom he pines for and Jackie Wright as the rich banker to whom she is bethrothed; this sketch was also featured in The Best of Benny Hill (1974). In addition, an interview sketch with Hill as an East End poet and Goldie as the interviewer (from the last of the black-and-white shows, originally aired 24 February 1971, episode 2.4) was later included in the album "This Is Benny Hill".
