This clip is the opening sequence from the first episode of Crawford Productions sitcom Bobby Dazzler (1977–78), titled 'Life Begins at 45 RPM' and starring pop icon Johnny Farnham.

After achieving great success in the recording industry in the late 1960s and early 1970s, John tried his hand at acting.

After a few guest appearances in popular TV shows including Division 4 (1969–75), he landed his own sitcom on the Seven Network about a young singer on the verge of a major career breakthrough.

John seems very comfortable playing the lead role of Bobby Farrell and this clip also shows that he had a knack for comedy. He holds his own in this scene with the much more seasoned actor Olivia Hamnett as music manager Della McDermott.
